Notes

Major watershed in terms of commercial building for Glasgow, comparable with Royal Bank of Scotland, Gordon Street. 1849 work was commissioned by Archibald MacLellan, who had run a coach building company on the site, destroyed by fire in 1847. Leased Messrs D & J Macdonald, the largest firm of sewed muslin manufacturers in Glasgow, until 1855.
