Old Photograph Royal Exchange Square Glasgow Scotland


Old photograph of Royal Exchange Square in Glasgow, Scotland. The square lies between Buchanan Street and Queen Street opening out at the junction of Queen Street with Ingram Street, just south of George Square. In the centre of the square is the former Royal Exchange, a Graeco Roman masterpiece designed by architect David Hamilton in 1829, where merchants exchanged contracts in cotton, linen, chemicals, coal, iron, steel, timber and other commodities. In front of the portico is Baron Marochetti`s noble bronze equestrian statue of Duke of Wellington erected in 1844.
