We're just a block away here on Bothwell Street at what was the Central Thread Agency. From about 1900, it was designed in three sections by two brothers, Hugh and David Barclay, and stands "all thick against the skyline with gables, turrets and chimneys." The Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland, edited by Francis Groome, 1901, is less tolerant and calls the building "over-ornamented."

The Barclay brothers did lots of other stuff, too. Stay tuned.
