Glasgow School of Art has featured twice on 23 Librarians, in posts by Delphine Dallison and Jennifer Higgins. The photograph above was taken on Thursday last week, the day before the fire in the west wing (nearest to camera) of the Mackintosh Building. As most of you will know, although 90% of the structure was saved, the iconic Mackintosh Library was gutted by the flames. In case anyone is interested in helping, a Mackintosh Building Fire Fund has been set up – you can find details on the GSA site.
The pictures below are also from my visit last week – they were taken on my phone, so please forgive the quality, but they do give some idea of what has been lost.
