Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Glasgow Core: Photo 98
You won't be surprised when I say that the architect here, John Honeyman, was keenly interested in architectural history. On the other hand, the building is popularly called the Ca' D'Oro, which makes you wonder how well Honeyman knew Venice. It's a bum rap. Yes, the building recalls Venice, but the name arrived in 1927, long after the building's completion in 1872. Who's to blame? Try the owners of the Ca' D'Oro restaurant, which opened under a mansard roof that was added to the building but which burned down in 1987 and was not replaced. Pre-mansard, this was F & J Smith Furniture Warehouse. Still, it's pretty special.
