Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Glasgow Core: Photo 51

world pictures The United Kingdom: Glasgow Core

Two blocks away and half the way back to Buchanan, this is Glasgow's Gallery of Modern Art. It's housed in an old house built in 1780 and enrobed fifty years later to suitably house the Royal Exchange. The Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland, ed. by Francis Groome, 1901, reports that "The principal apartment is a great newsroom, 130 feet long, 60 wide and 30 high.... The subscription is 3 pounds for members who have residences or offices within six miles of it, and 1 pound, 10s. from others...." Telephones reduced the need of businessmen to chat face to face, and in 1949 the exchange was sold to the city. The building housed a library until the museum hatched in 1996. But I want to know who's out front.
