Statement of Interest

Major watershed in terms of commercial building for

Glasgow, comparable with Royal Bank of Scotland, Gordon

Street. 1849 work was commissioned by Archibald

MacLellan, who had run a coach building company on the

site, destroyed by fire in 1847. Leased Messrs D & J

Macdonald, the largest firm of sewed muslin

manufacturers in Glasgow, until 1855.
