A good example of a turn-of-the-century Glasgow Style corner tenement prominently sited at the junction of London and Springfield Road in the Barrowfield area of the city. The building is distinguished by its distinctive leaded ogee cupola and spire finial to corner turret. The London Road Tavern wraps around the corner, and retains a simple fascia with traditional lettering.
The Springfield Road elevation incorporates two relief carved pediments, one dated 1900 and the other monogrammed with the initials of Edward A Tait. An early advertisement for the Tavern names the landlord as A R Tait.
