Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh made a very minor alteration for 'fitting of ventilation in well' in this large terraced house. 1 Client W. R. M. Church was treasurer to the trustees of a charitable organisation, the Glasgow House of Shelter for Females, for whom the firm had carried out work on several occasions.

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.
