Electrical Engineering had always been taught as part of Physics until a separate chair was established at University College, Dundee in 1947. As the two subjects grew too large for the Carnegie and Peters Buildings in the Geddes Quadrangle, a new Electrical Engineering building was erected in 1954, named the Ewing Building in honour of the first Professor of Engineering James Alfred Ewing. A significant amount of new equipment was bought in preparation for the new labs in the Ewing Building opening in 1954, including this voltmeter made at the London branch of the American-based company Sangamo Weston in c.1953.
