Through The Looking Glass

This year marks the 150th anniversary of Alice in Wonderland, hailed by many as one of the famous of all the Victorian children’s novels. Lewis Carroll’s follow-up, Alice Through the Looking Glass, was just as popular  – and in a way, much like Alice, modern architecture around Glasgow allows us to go ‘through the looking glass’ back to Victorian times, as many of the buildings from this period reflect favourably in the reflections, whether by design or accident.


Two centuries of architecture meld together in this ethereal visage: A late 20th century office building, as St Stephens House reflects in full the image of the very Victorian Renfield St Stephen’s Church, built in 1852, that’s directly across the road on Bath Street. The property has a very striking glass façade to distinguish it from the surrounding buildings. Local occupiers include AXA Sun Life, the Royal Bank of Scotland and Strathclyde Police.
