Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh's drawings submitted to the Glasgow Dean of Guild Court show additions and alterations for James Hardy, M.D. when he took up residence in this 1840s four-storey, yellow sandstone terraced house. 1 The work carried out comprised an indoor W.C., kitchen sink and cupboard shelves in the basement; an outdoor toilet and washhouse tubs; a new basin in Dr Hardy's ground-floor consulting room; removing a first-floor internal wall; two canted dormer windows and a new bathroom in the attic; and associated painting work.

Authorship: This is one of over 270 jobs carried out in the office of John Honeyman & Keppie (Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh from 1901) during Mackintosh's time there. Mackintosh undoubtedly worked on many of these, but there is no specific evidence for his involvement in this case.
