Langside Hall

Last Sunday I showed you Pollokshaws Burgh Hall. This Sunday I’m showing a similar place, this time the other side of Queen’s Park from where I live. Today it seems to be used for similar purposes as Pollokshaws Burgh Hall – wedding receptions, exercise classes, surgeries for local councillors, interest group meetings, that sort of thing. It has quite an interesting history – it was designed around 1847 by John Thomas (no sniggering at the back please) who was also involved in the building of the Houses of Parliament, and was originally the National Bank of Scotland in Queen Street in the city centre. Around 1889 it was removed from Queen Street stone by stone and re-erected in Langside.
