A Portrait of Madras College, edited by journalist Lorn McIntyre, is a limited edition book capturing "almost everything" that has happened in and out of the school over a year. Photographer Peter Adamson caught everything from S1 pupils arriving on the first day to S6 pupils at their leaving ball, and teachers and pupils contributed the articles.
