GLASGOW_hillheadSchThis imposing building once housed Hillhead Primary School. The beautifully cut serif lettering (Govan Parish School Board) is set on the lintel of the entrance way, with the  capitals of the large square pillars being in the form of carved heads. Constructed of red sandstone, this large, five-storey building was built in 1844 in a Neo-classical style.

Location: Cecil Street, Glasgow, Scotland.
