Basic Biographical Details

Name: Tarbolton & Smart
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: 1 October 1927
Ended: c. 1931
Bio Notes: In January 1923 Tarbolton took on Lawrence Harrower Smart (born 1896) - who had trained with Christie & Davidson of Dunblane and in Rosyth Dockyard before working as assistant to Leadbetter, Fairley & Reid - as a draughtsman. Smart acted as his representative on the works at Bermuda Cathedral from November 1926 until September 1927 and at the beginning of the following month Tarbolton took him into partnership. The firm of Tarbolton & Smart, with offices in Hamilton, Bermuda, continued until the beginning of the 1930s, but appears to have been dissolved by late 1932 when Tarbolton merged his practice with that of Sir Matthew Montgomerie Ochterlony.
