We have been lucky enough to have been sent these wonderful images from Roger and Helen Millar, who have very kindly granted us permission to use them in our campaign to help catalogue and preserve Glasgow’s wonderful built heritage. The following images are of the, exterior and interior, Millar & Lang Publishing House on Darnely Street in Pollokshields. The A- listed building was designed and executed by D.B.Dobson of Gordon and Dodson in 1901-03.
The interior of the building is jaw-dropping, with mermaids, dragons, nymphs, fish, moths, bats and (magic?) mushrooms scattered throughout. The two images (below) of the detail of Japanese manner brass plates on the door, clearly demonstrate how wonderfully delicate, yet striking the interiors of the building actually are!
The stained glass by William Gibson Morton (1871-1946) again is in a league of it’s own! To find out more about William Gibson Morton click here.
We are hoping to add these images to the Scottish Stained Glass database very soon! If you have any (good quality) images of stained glass, in Glasgow but don’t know what to do with them, The History Girls are more than happy to ensure that they will be added to the database in the very near future.
Thank you to Roger and Helen Millar from the Pollokshields Heritage Society.
