Description

Triumphal archway, moved to present location 1991-2. composed of fragments salvaged from R & J Adam's Glasgow Assembly Rooms of 1792-6 which was demolished circa 1890. Fragments were first re-assembled under direction of John Carrick, city architect, 1894, and placed in Jail Square, moved 1922 to Glasgow Green, where it served as a terminus to the view down Charlotte Street. Having begun to tilt over, it required dismantling, and the opportunity was taken to move it to the present site, opposite William Stark's Courthouse.

One face has Ionic olumns, the other, pilasters.
