Our next lecture is on Tuesday 11 October 2016 when Dr Evelyn Silber will tell us about:
Tea with Mackintosh: the Glasgow Tearoom Phenomenon
Miss Cranston, the pioneer of Glasgow tearooms in the 19th Century, wanted to create somewhere for the people of Glasgow to socialise without alcohol. From 1897 to 1917 the Mackintoshes designed rooms in all four of Miss Cranston's tearooms in Glasgow, with dazzling inventiveness.
