B/W photograph of truss at St Paul's Church Mission Hall during demolition c. 1977

St Paul's Church Mission occupied a converted school building of c. 1871, close to the High Street in the oldest part of Glasgow. In 1895–6, John Honeyman & Keppie added a new hall at the rear and a simple dwelling for the beadle (a church officer).

Authorship: The unusual design of the hall roof trusses suggests Mackintosh's involvement. He may also have been the draughtsman of the original drawings from which the surviving designs were copied.
