West George St, St Jude’s (Stephen, 1839) before it became a restaurant.  June 1975




West George St, north side east of Wellington St.  This lovely late Georgian house (probably by John Brash, who built Blythswood Square) has had  its windows restored to their original form, divided by astragals into small panes,  which is a great improvement on the wall-eyed look it has here.  June 1975

100 West Regent St. The former Masonic Hall, with its statues of the St Johns, Baptist and Evangelist, looked in danger, but it has survived.  August 1977




Gordon St, north side opposite Central Station. The Grosvenor Building (1862) by Alexander Thomson was a speculative venture with his brother, and it almost ruined them.  August 1977

Drury St, south side. Pubs may come and pubs may go, but The Horse Shoe goes on for ever, or let’s hope so anyway.  August 1977




West George St, south side west of Anchor Lane. Just in time, or just too late, depending on which way you look at it, with demolition imminent.  October 1975

West Nile St and Sauchiehall St, northeast corner. This fine church, said to have had an equally fine interior, was St John’s Wesleyan Methodist. It was demolished a year or two later, and the southwest corner of the Buchanan Galleries now occupies the site.  March 1974




Hope St, west side south from Bath St. Little changed.   October 1973
