Glasgow, 2-18 John Street, John Street United Presbyterian Church.

Architect: J.T. Rochead.


Publication Account (2006)

A United Presbyterian church designed by J & T Rockhead in 1858-60. The Italian Mannerist palazzo design combines giant order Ionic columns over a heavily rusticated base. The fitting of the glazing hard into the columns was a daring innovation. It was recorded prior to its conversion into a bar and offices.
