Alexander Greek Thomson Glasgow

This evening I am posting an image of the memorial to Alexander 'Greek' Thomson and his family members which is located in Glasgow's Southern Necropolis. Thomson was a famous architect with many extant examples of his work in Glasgow and environs. He obtained the sobriquet 'Greek' because of the classical Greek influences on his designs although he never actually visited Greece.

Thomson was born in Balfron in 1841 and died 1875.

The memorial in the image was completed in 2006.
