It’s all Greek to us
“A council has come under fire from conservationists who claim it has not done enough to restore a city centre church regarded as one of the most important 19th century monuments in Scotland….Five years ago the World Monuments Fund in Britain (WMF), a conservation charity, helped complete a £5 million restoration project on the spire of Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson’s St Vincent Street Church in Glasgow, which was built in 1859…..’I sometimes wonder whether Glasgow realises what an architectural masterpiece the city has at the centre….St Vincent Street Church is of international importance as the greatest work by Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson that survives’.”
