Below are some heart breaking photos of a fire that ripped through one of Glasgow’s most iconic building’s. The good news is no one was killed, the sad sad news is a lot of history has been destroyed, such as artwork, interior design, books, original furniture and students installations. A part of Glasgow died on the 23rd May 2014.
My thoughts are with the Students, Staff and all who are involved with Glasgow School of Art. Thanks to the brave firefighters!!
I look forward to the day this European Architectural masterpiece by Charles Rennie MacIntosh, is restored to it’s Glory, and make Glasgow smile once again!
The photo below showed a simple but meaningful token of appreciation to the fire-fighters who had to tackle the blaze in a unique way to try and save as much as possible.
The fire-fighters managed to save 90% of the building and 70% of the buildings contents, while risking their lives.

Let Glasgow Flourish ❤
It is in our nature Lauren.
I had heard about the fire on our news here in Chicago. I feel so very bad for all who lost art works… and for the damage on that historic building. I’m so happy to hear no one was killed.
Thank you for your thoughts Anita!
