This morning I visited an important example of Glasgow’s architectural heritage as manifested in Millbrae Crescent, Langside.

Millbrae Crescent, which dates from 1876-1877, is associated with famous Glaswegian architect, Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson (1817-1875) who is acknowledged by many as the greatest architect of Victorian Glasgow and perhaps the greatest mind in Scottish Architecture. He acquired the nickname ‘Greek’ because of his belief that the architecture of the ancient Greeks could be the basis of modern architecture. However, Thomson never actually visited Greece and seldom left Glasgow.
