The job-book entry says this payment is for the 'studio', but it must be chiefly for the picture gallery: map evidence shows that the studio had been built by 1907, and Keppie's drawings of January 1909 for the picture gallery confirm that the studio was already in existence, although some work would have been required to link it with the new gallery.
