Another one of Alexander "Greek" Thompson's masterpieces in the wonderful city of Glasgow. Amazing architecture! Beautiful columns, window details, and Egyptian/Greek busts. A must see for architecture lovers and if you really want to appreciate Glasgow's wondrous architecture.

I frequently pass this church ( in fact I was born just a little over a stone's throw away) but unfortunately have never been inside. It is a good example of Alexander "Greek" Thomson's work and is one of my favourite buildings in Glasgow.
