This afternoon, I am presenting some images of the only surviving intact church by Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson. This dates from 1857-59 and is situated on the corner of St Vincent St and Pitt St Glasgow. This building’s features include:

  • Own man-made Acropolis
  • Ionic porticoes
  • Internal cast iron columns
  • Windows with huge sheets of glass rammed into the masonry.

This is still a living church ( Free Church) and is an iconic site for students of architecture.
