Scope and Content View of the West Corridor in the basement of the Glasgow School of Art, No 167 Renfrew Street, Glasgow The west corridor of the Glasgow School of Art runs the entire length of the basement level of the building. This black and white photograph, taken in 1910 by Harry Bedford Lemere, shows the corridor lined with a fine collection of plaster casts. This plain, long, windowless corridor was lit by electric light, one of the new technologies of the time. The walls were originally lined with shelves containing part of the School's large collection of plaster casts, few of which have survived today. The corridor housed the lecture theatre, the anatomy studio and the life modelling room as well as studios for sculpture, ceramics, silver-smithing, metalwork, enamelling, glass-staining, wood-carving, and a special studio for drawing live animals.
