Scots engineers and architects and their families in 19th century Japan

-with a postscript on their descendant SOE’s Colin Gubbins 

 Illustrated talk by Roger Kelly £3 (£2) Penicuik Town Hall, High St., Penicuik EH26 8HS

01968 677854 roger@kosmoid.net   http://www.kosmoid.net/lives/mcvean

As a result of the practical enlightenment, there was a highly productive interchange between Scotland and Japan in the second half of the 19th century.  This topic is the subject of current research in Japan. Roger Kelly will describe the role of architect Campbell Douglas, designer of Penicuik Town Hall, the work of lighthouse engineer Richard Brunton, surveyor Colin McVean, and seismologist Cargill Gilston Knott.  McVean and his wife Mary Cowan, daughter of the Penicuik papermaker Alexander Cowan, raised their family in Japan and imperial emissaries in return studied papermaking here in Penicuik.  When McVean and his wife returned to Scotland and settled on Mull  they brought their Japanese born grandchildren the Gubbins family and one of them, Colin Gubbins, later became liaison with Polish forces and leader of SOE’s secret war in occupied Europe.

Singing in Crichton Collegiate Church

Vault singers of Penicuik at Crichton Church near Pathhead, Midlothian EH37 5XA

Performance is free but donations may be made to the Crichton Collegiate Church Trust

Crichton Church was founded on 26 December 1449 by William Crichton, 1st Lord Crichton, Lord Chancellor of Scotland "Out of thankfullness and gratitude to Almighty God, our Lord Jesus Christ, the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Kentigern and All Saints", Like many other Scottish collegiate churches, Crichton was built for the use of the local lord, and a provost, eight prebendaries, two choir boys and a sacrist were appointed to pray for the souls of the Crichton family. The building is no longer used as a parish church and is in the care of the Crichton Collegiate Church Trust. Vault Singers sing simple harmonic chants here every four weeks throughout the year, and also sing regularly in the nearby Collegiate Chapels of Rosslyn (in the crypt) and Seton. Built for voices, each of these ancient spaces has a very special acoustic.  Chants have a religious basis.

Polish Forces in Scotland, General Maczek, and the Great Polish Map

 Illustrated talk by Roger Kelly £3 (£2) Penicuik Town Hall, High St., Penicuik EH26 8HS

01968 677854   roger@kosmoid.net     http://www.makers.org.uk/penicuik/maczek

The story of the Polish forces in Scotland begins with the Polish Navy’s arrival in the Forth at the outbreak of war in 1939. General Maczek’s successes against the Blitzkreig, escape to Hungary, France and ultimately the UK is explored, Polish deployment in Norway and the Battle of Britain and major role in the  defence of Scottish coasts is little known. This talk follows the Polish medical support through units like the Paderewski Hospital in Edinburgh, and the training for Normandy landings at Blairgowrie and in East Lothian. Successes of Polish Forces at Montecassino and at Falaise in 1944 was followed in 1945 by the liberation of Breda and the surrender of Wilhelmshaven.  But the shock of Yalta led to disillusion and years of postwar exile for many in Scotland.  During those Iron Curtain decades a lasting memorial to the Poles defence of Scotland was created: the Great Polish Map beside Barony Castle at Eddleston.  This is now being restored by the MapaScotland project, to which donations can be made.

Diamonds in the Deli

Talk by David I Harvie £3 (£2) Penicuik Town Hall, High St., Penicuik EH26 8HS

01968 677854 roger@kosmoid.net http://www.kosmoid.net/penicuik/upcoming

David I Harvie tells the story of the brilliantly inventive James Ballantyne Hannay. The son of a baker who became a property developer and theatre-owner, he had an early interest at school in chemistry, philosophy and astronomy. He studied solids, liquids and gases in Glasgow and Manchester and opened a chemical works in Glasgow’s east end. He established a patents company and registered a bewildering range of patents in a variety of fields. While still a young man, he bought Cove Castle, a fine Scots Baronial tower-house. He opened a further laboratory in what later became a well-loved Glasgow delicatessen. Here, in 1880, he produced microscopic sample of artificial diamond – one of the holy grails of technology. They were authenticated by the top European diamond expert, Prof. Story-Maskelene of the British Museum.  Hannay himself, a classic experimenter, was  intent on setting out on yet more original work. The diamond issue remained oddly quiet for some time, perhaps through disbelief and the nervousness of stock exchanges. While Hannay devoted himself to technological innovations he became increasingly involved in exploring and writing about metaphysics.  He theorised on the origins and function of the universe, and aspects of religion and sexual iconography, from a staunchly atheist viewpoint.  Over many decades – until well after Hannay’s death in 1931 – his microscopic diamond samples were subjected to further testing, as new methods became available. Tantalisingly, it seemed that each result seemed to contradict the previous finding . . . until, in 1975 the ‘final’ series of tests, at King’s College, London, considered conclusively that they were definitely natural, and could not possibly have been man-made. It seems hard to believe that the last word has been heard on the Hannay Diamonds -  but for the fact that the tiny samples could no longer sustain further testing. Today artificial diamond technology is very advanced; yet, even here, the latest idea is to produce diamond film using Tequila!

The Kosmoid Enigma

Talk by David I Harvie introduced by Roger Kelly £3 (£2)

Penicuik Town Hall, High St., Penicuik EH26 8HS

01968 677854  roger@kosmoid.net    http://www.kosmoid.net/shiels

There was extraordinary attempt to transmute elements on Clydeside at the beginning of the 20th century by Kosmoid Ltd, a well-funded company set up under the aegis of Dr Alexander Shiels, a charismatic medical man. The enterprise involved a tube factory, leading figures, and massive investment. Was it science, alchemy or an attempt to influence the markets?  This strange story cannot help but touch several people in Glasgow at the time: Glasgow metal speculator  and junior Trade Minister Andrew Bonar Law, Ernest Rutherford’s collaborator in elemental transmutation the Nobel laureate Frederick Soddy, television pioneer A.A. Campbell Swinton,  the later head of ICI Alexander Fleck, and one of Scotland’s most notable 20th century politicians: Walter Elliot who was the son of Dr Shiels’ dead sister and raised in his household. Intriguingly the events were alluded to by John Buchan in his novel loosely based on the character of Prime Minister Arthur Balfour “The Power House”. 

It is only in the last few years the extensive Babcock and Wilcox factory at Dumbarton has been demolished and turned into a housing development, almost a century after its construction. This factory was the unlikely focus of one of Britain’s most bizarre company scandals. In 1906 it was alleged that the Kosmoid Company was secretly trying to make gold from lead and copper from pig-iron on a commercial scale. The classic alchemist’s dream was to be set in the hard-headed and conventional cauldron of Clydeside heavy engineering. The Kosmoid companies (three of them) were set up by Alexander Shiels, a young doctor who did more than dabble in engineering and related activities - he had well over 100 British patents, as well as dozens of overseas patents and licences. The three companies were controlled by a secretive group of 18, called the Metallurgical Syndicate, whose stated aim was "the commercial development of secret processes of manufacture known to Alexander Shiels by which quicksilver (mercury) could be produced from lead and copper from iron." Some of the West of Scotland’s princes of industry incredibly put their names to this, and agreed that Shiels could do what he wanted and employ who he wanted with no interference from the partners. They also agreed not to enter the factory or ask what was being done there. Following the scandal, confusion and doubt perhaps rather suited Glasgow's business establishment, given the embarrassment suffered by some of their most influential merchants and financiers. The equivalent of £10 million was lost, reputations were in tatters, and there were allegations of attempted murder against the central character.

“The Man Who Caused the Boer War”

Talk by David I Harvie £3 (£2) Penicuik Town Hall, High St., Penicuik EH26 8HS

01968 677854 roger@kosmoid.net http://www.kosmoid.net/penicuik/upcoming

John Stewart MacArthur's contribution in two scientific areas is unique and important. A century ago, he and his collaborators were pioneers in ensuring the survival of the world's gold and silver extraction industry - with all the implications for international economies. And in the first two decades of the last century, he was closely involved with the innovators of what was then a completely unknown and dangerous field of science: he was unwittingly involved in the birthof the nuclear industry. MacArthur’s story occurred in a past so recent that, although out of the direct touch of anyone still living, it is still tantalisingly close. His discovery of the Cyanide Process of gold extraction, and its development towards commercial viability, was done in the hothouse that was Kinning Park in Glasgow. is exploits in gold extraction ended with a vicious patents trial in South Africa, when the venal gold magnates in that country deprived him of his share of the benefits that his process brought to them and their country.  His story is at a time when communications were poor, electricity was uncommon, and foreign travel (which plays a part in these events which it is impossible to ignore) was achieved only with considerable time and hardship.

After the Reformation, King James VI built this impressive new palace to the west of the old Abbey cloister. It became the home of his queen, Anna of Denmark. King Charles I was born here in 1600, the last king to be born in Scotland. With James and Anna’s departure for London in 1603, royal attention waned and the palace fell into disrepair. 

Dunfermline Palace is a building of enormous interest and Vault Singers sing simple harmonic chants here every four weeks throughout each winter. Although known as the kitchen vault, the building’s association with Anna of Denmark reminds us that some Danish royal palaces of the time contained acoustic vaults for musicians.  The vaults singers demonstrate the attractive acoustic of this place.  Warm clothing required. Although under cover, sides of the vault are open. There is no seating inside the vaulted space and numbers within at any one time may be limited.  Chants  have a religious basis.

Liszt in Scotland

2011 marks the bicentenary of Franz Liszt.  Following in the footsteps of Mendelssohn, Chopin and Paganini, Liszt made a remarkable tour to Scotland as a young man, of which we will hear an entertaining account. His progress through this country was recorded by one of Liszt’s entourage, the talented John Orlando Parry, in words and sketches which bring the discomforts of ferries, coaching, inns and early railways vividly to life.  What was the legacy of this visit?   Four people close to Liszt had Scottish connections: the eminent conductor Hans von Bülow directed a season in Glasgow, and left a lasting mark on Scottish music-making in several visits; Liszt’s pupils Eugen d'Albert and Frederic Lamond were both born in Glasgow and became world famous piano virtuosi; and Liszt’s friend the composer Sir Alexander Mackenzie, born in Edinburgh, was important in musical education and, along with those of d’Albert, his works are being rediscovered.  Derek Watson has gathered rare and interesting material about these Scottish connections, providing opportunities for musical and visual illustrations of Liszt's life and extraordinary influence. Derek is well-known as a bookshop proprietor. He is also a talented pianist, author, composer, actor and public speaker. An acknowledged expert on Liszt, he brings immediacy, humour and colour to his talks.

Powerhouse of Practical Enlightenment

 1700-1900 and beyond

with Roger Hipkin & Roger Kelly

Ticket price £5 (£3)  01968 677854 roger@kosmoid.net   www.kosmoid.net/penicuik/upcoming

The dispersal of practical enlightenment from this area around Edinburgh began with the foundation of a papermill at the start of the seventeenth century, growing with an unparalleled spread of ideas through the medium of its paper in for example Scottish bibles, Burns’ songs, Scott’s novels, Turner’s paintings, banknotes, account books and stamps. It led to industrial developments in Russia, Finland, Canada and Japan, and through its technical developments and efforts for removal of paper duty, to Edinburgh’s eminence as a centre for book and magazine production and educational publishing. It also provided the economic wherewithal for  public welfare investment at home and transatlantic infrastructure investment on a large scale, and for ethical, scientific and cultural resonances which continue to the present day. Roger Hipkin and Roger Kelly have been co-ordinating efforts to identify and secure permanent recognition for these local achievements at Bank Mill, Penicuik, in the last remaining buildings associated with these worldwide innovations.
