Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Glasgow Core: Photo 30

world pictures The United Kingdom: Glasgow Core

We've come about 800 feet down Buchanan to St. George's Tron, a box of a church completed in 1809 and most noteworthy possibly for its tower (the finials were supposed to have statues but money ran short). Perhaps it's more noteworthy from its position in the center of a small square that breaks the grid and creates a handy landmark. The square was St. George's until 1986, when it officially became Nelson Mandela Place. Mandela was still in prison, and the South African consulate-general was housed in the building on the left. Since then, the church has been further caught up in politics, with the entire congregation in 2012 moving out to be replaced by a new minister and new worshippers accepting the Church of Scotland's new-found toleration of openly gay clergy.
