Alexander Thomson Ancestry Tour Glasgow

Sunday, March 02, 2008

This afternoon I am presenting an image of Greek Thomson's memorial in Glasgow's Southern Necropolis. This is constructed in marble and features as one the most imposing memorials in the cemetery.

Thomson was the greatest architect of Victorian Glasgow. He was called 'Greek' Thomson because of his belief that the architecture of ancient Greece could be the basis of truly modern architecture.

Thomson was born in Balfron in 1817 and died 1875 at his home in Moray Place, Glasgow
