Statement of Interest

Built as a Masonic Lodge with shops and a public house on the ground floor. The building is now in single ownership. A well-detailed red sandstone building occupying a prominent position on the junction of Queen Street and King Street.

Robert Dalglish (circa 1839-98) was the assistant to, and later in partnership with George Penrose Kennedy. His early work, for example Callander Free Church, was mostly in western Perthshire, but he later built up his practice around Glasgow. In 1876 he built the extension to Rutherglen Town Hall in partnership with John Thomson. This Masonic Hall was built within the last year of his life and was probably one of his last commissions. Dalglish's surname is more commonly spelt 'Dalgleish', but he seems to have used both spellings, and 'Dalglish' is used on the Dean of Guild register for this building. It is interesting to note that the petitioner who submitted the Dean of Guild application for this building was a women, Mrs Gardeners.
