Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh carried out interior alterations to make a billiard room for George Rome of George Rome & Co. and Robert Rome & Son at the large, red sandstone, terraced house in Glasgow's West End which Rome had owned since it was built in 1899. 1

Authorship: 'Billiard room details' for 9 Queen's Gate was included on a list of drawings, produced in the office during Mackintosh's time, compiled in the 1930s by Ronald Harrison. Harrison was an early student of his architecture who had access to the office records. He evidently believed that Mackintosh contributed in some way to the design of the building, but no evidence has come to light to support this attribution.
