M304 Design for Robert Rome & Son's premises, West George Street

Address: West George Street (between Douglas Streat and Pitt Street), Glasgow
Date: 1910
Client: Robert Rome & Son
Authorship: Authorship category 4 (Office) (Office)

Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh's drawings submitted to the Glasgow Dean of Guild Court show a design for a metal-framed shed, square in plan, with curved roof to be constructed in the S.W. corner of the premises of Robert Rome & Son, lath merchant. The plasterers George Rome & Co. were located at the same address. 1 The work was not recorded in the practice job books nor was it signed off in the Dean of Guild Court Register of Plans, which suggests it was not carried out.

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.
