Mackintosh Lighthouse Architecture, Glasgow, Scotland
Saturday, January 23, 2010
This evening, my blog theme is Charles Rennie Mackintosh's Lighthouse in Glasgow. First, however, will address other topical matters of the day:
Glasgow Weather: Dry and mild. As I write this I am witnessing a stunning and vibrant sunset.
Glasgow Ancestry: Just posted information to my separate blog on the Sommerville family from information obtained at Glasgow's Necropolis.
Tours of Scotland: Finalising formalities with a hotel on Isle of Skye re a group tour for September.
Website: Just completed re-vamping two of the older web pages. More to follow!
Mackintosh Architecture: This evening's theme is the Lighthouse in Mitchell Lane which dates from 1893-1895. Was previously known as the Glasgow Herald Building and is now a centre for architecture and design with a section on Charles Rennie Mackintosh. The image above shows the helical staircase (126 steps) leading to the top of the tower where there is a viewpoint affording magnificent views across the city of Glasgow.
