Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh carried out minor pointing and repairs to stone work at the school. The work appears to have been carried out in May–June 1907: no dates are recorded in the job book for the work, but the preceding and following projects were entered in the job book in those months. In October 1908, the firm were paid a small sum by Kelvinside Academy. This probably corresponds to the work carried out. 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.
