This job entailed installing a new shopfront at the premises of Henry & Carruthers, 'ladies' tailors', and making a number of internal alterations. The work does not survive, and no photographs have come to light.

Authorship: The job-book entry is written entirely in Mackintosh's hand, and one of the drawings approved by the Glasgow Dean of Guild Court is signed by him. However, there is insufficient visual evidence to say if Mackintosh was responsible for the design.
