A Brisk WalkLength : 5 Minutes 33 Seconds

Slender elegance

Second cousin to the Lion Chambers…an almost Gaudi-like structure.

Officially it is named St Vincent Chambers, but everyone knows it as the Hatrack. This tall thin Art Nouveau building is also the work of James Salmon ll who left his adventurous mark on Glasgow in the early 20th century. Along with his friend Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Salmon introduced Art Nouveau, Glasgow Style and early Modernist elements in a series of ground-breaking buildings.

Johnny takes us through some of the finer details of this wonderfully designed structure, with its remarkable craftsmanship and uniquely elegant features.
