Scope and Content Dining Room, Central Station Hotel, No 99 Gordon Street, Glasgow, from the north The Central Station Hotel was designed by Sir Robert Rowand Anderson for the Caledonian Railway Company, and extended in 1900-5 by James Miller to include a new magnificent dining room. The interior was photographed in 1906 by Harry Bedford Lemere. The dining room, which occupies the first- and second-floor levels of the extension, is lined with giant marble columns supporting a plaster-panelled ceiling. The enormous brass light fittings are decorated with figures of mermen supporting glass bowls. In 1900 the Caledonian Railway Company appointed Miller, with his extensive railway experience, as architect of the extensions to their Central Station and to their hotel which were both needed in order to cope with the increasing volume of travellers.
