Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Glasgow Core: Photo 84
How busy can these buildings be? Here, from 1900 and a block east of Mandela Square, is a warehouse (in that obsolete sense) built for Connal and Company, which we met before at the Glasgow Tobacco Warehouse. The stone is the ever-popular Locharbriggs sandstone. Here, Williamson writes, the stone forms "heaped-up gables, masses of rustication, blocked columns and so on." Original? Williamson thinks not and judges that the building is largely a copy of the famous Hotel Zum Ritter, next to the Protestant church on Heidelberg's Haupstrasse. Gomme, writing in the 1980s, already considered the ground floor "irrecoverable."
