Daily Record Building

DSC05171Daily Record Building – Charles Rennie Mackintosh – 1901

The Daily Record building was originally designed for the purposes of printing newspapers with office space above. I was quite shocked to see such an amazing and beautiful building down such a narrow backstreet alley. I had a good look at the building and took some photos, although it was hard to take a good photo due to the narrow proximity of the lane.
