Millar & Lang Building, Pollokshields

This morning, I visited, by appointment, offices which occupy interior of the former Millar and Lang building which dates from 1902.

To the casual visitor there are few indications from the exterior of what appears to be a nondescript building situated in a mixed area although a careful examination will result in a few clues as manifested by carvings and a statue. However, on gaining access to the interior a visitor is presented with a visual feast of richly embellished and imaginatively designed stained glass complemented by elaborate and exotic carvings of dragons. The stained glass images mainly comprise nautical scenes.

The building’s architect was D.B. Dobson of Gordon & Dobson. It would be interesting to find identity of the person(s) responsible for the impressive art work.

Millar and Laing were art publishers and the decor was probably designed to impress visiting clients.

This building has, deservedly, been assigned top Grade 1 heritage ranking, although it is not a visitor attraction. Access by appointment with tenants.
