Address: St Ninian Street, Glasgow
Date: 1899
Client: J. & T. Hodge
Authorship: Authorship category 4 (Office) (Office)

John Honeyman & Keppie's drawings show a utilitarian addition, one floor plus attic, to the four-storey Gorbals building belonging to J. & T. Hodge, a tobacco, snuff and cigarette manufacturer. 1 It seems probable that the building was a warehouse. The addition was constructed using a steel skeleton giving uninterrupted floor areas. The pitched roof was partly glazed.

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.
