Aesthetically the bridge may be more successful. Gomme calls it "one of the only two of Glasgow's present collection worth notice." The designer of the triumphal pylons was Alexander Kirkland, who in a fine show of the meanderings of fate, abandoned Scotland for the New World and from 1879 to 1886 served as Chicago's Commissioner of Public Buildings.
