Hi Marblez, good we thread you have here, pity some of Thomsons buildings are gone

Did I read in the press the other day that Ford Keirnan lived in the house at Nithsdale rd and sold it last week?

'Greek' Thomson - Glasgow's Master Builder

http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08lmvt4

David Hayman goes in search of Alexander 'Greek' Thomson, the visionary architect who, a generation before Charles
Rennie Mackintosh, transformed industrial Glasgow with some of the most exotic and exciting buildings in the world.
