Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh made unspecified modest alterations to the church involving joiner, plumber and painter work. At the time the work was carried out, there were two United Free churches in Queen's Park: the East, designed by Alexander Thomson of 1868–9, which was demolished in the 1940s; and the West by James Thomson of 1873–5. In 1902, a new organ was installed in the West church and it is possible, though not certain, that the alterations, for which the contractors were paid in February 1903, were connected with the organ installation. 1

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.
