St. Vincent Street Church

I was walking across Blythswood Square in the cold of the morning when I spotted the very distinctive, slightly Indian (or is it Egyptian ?) dome of Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson’s St. Vincent Street Church over the rooftops. It is now closed – the plasterwork ceiling was at risk of falling onto the congregation – but what a magnificent, heroic, dark ruin it is, high on its podium:-

I hope to goodness that Glasgow City Council, who own it, have plans for its restoration:-
