Pre 1850 Glasgow buildings

Postby glasgowken » Sun Jun 29, 2008 5:10 pm

Apart from the obvious, Glasgow Cathedral, Provands Lordship, GOMA, Tollbooth Steeple and the Trades House, how many pre 1850 buildings remain in Glasgow ?
With photos please :)

Langside Halls which or course was originally a bank in Queen Street was built in 1847 before being moved, brick by brick, to Shawlands in 1903.

There's actually loads of pre-1850 buildings in Glasgow. Here's a few well known ones....

The original tower of the Merchant's Hall (long since demolished) still stands proudly over the Briggait. This tower is from 1659.

The Virginia Buildings in Virginia Street date from 1817. That's the building that has the shop Jacobean Corsetry. No photo I'm afraid.

St George's Church is from 1807.
Image

Carlton Place is from 1802.
Image

The former Royal Scottish Automobile Club building in Blythswood Square is from 1823.
Image

The old Royal Bank Of Scotland building that is now home to Borders Books was built in 1827.

The Custom House in Clyde Street dates from 1840.
