Basic Biographical Details

Name: Bell & Menzies
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: c. 1859
Ended: 1864
Bio Notes: Robert Bell was in practice in Dalkeith by 1835 but subsequently moved to 28 St Patrick's Square Edinburgh where he died on 24 February 1859. The sums owing in the inventory of his estate (NAS SC 70/1/102, p731) suggest that his practice was mainly concerned with farm steadings, farmhouses and cottages.

The practice was continued by Duncan Menzies, probably of his office, under the title of Bell & Menzies. He relocated the practice to 13 Young Street where he founded the partnership about 1864 with James W Stewart as Stewart & Menzies.
