Scope and Content Trustees' Corridor, the Clyde Navigation Trust (now the Clyde Port Authority) Building, No 16 Robertson Street, Glasgow The Clyde Navigation Trust building was designed in an opulent style by John James Burnet, and extended in 1905-8. The magnificent Trustees' Corridor, which leads to the principal rooms, was photographed in 1909 by the photographer, Harry Bedford Lemere. The corridor has a ceiling of gilded domes, echoed in the pattern of the mosaic floor. The walls, panelled in teak, are lined with black pilasters with gold capitals. The windows are decorated with heraldic glass and bear the Trades' badges of Glasgow. The Trust was a powerful organisation responsible for all aspects of shipping on the River Clyde. The building stood in the original heart of Clyde navigation, the Broomielaw, whose docks were the gateway from industrial Scotland to the rest of the world. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
