THE Glasgow Herald’s municipal correspondent, Claude Thomson, had spent hours in the City Chambers every day, seeking information about the workings of Glasgow Corporation and its committees. To him it was the most fascinating building in the city, but he had never had a full-scale tour. Until, that is, one day in February 1971, when he got his wish.

“Monument to Victorian ideas of civic splendour”, ran the headline above his report. He first climbed the 54 stone and 90 spiral stairs to reach a vantage-point in the central tower (he took one look at the 30 rungs on a ladder that would have brought him higher still but decided enough was enough, thanks anyway).
