Glasgow Post Office Building

Glasgow Corporation took over the management of George Square in 1862. When the Post Office foundation stone was laid by the Prince of Wales in 1878 the square’s iron railings were removed, transverse walks formed, and flower beds introduced.

On the South side, linking Cochrane Street and St Vincent Place, the former General Post Office built in 1878 takes up the block between South Frederick Street and South Hanover Street. It was redeveloped into offices in 2007. The block between there and Queen Street has a Chicago-style office building, dating from 1924. The city’s main Tourist Information Centre previously in the square is now in Buchanan Street.
