Basic Biographical Details

Name: James Lindsay (junior)
Designation: Architect
Born: c. 1892
Bio Notes: James Lindsay Junior was born c.1892, the son of Glasgow architect James Lindsay and his wife Jessie Millar Black. He was presumably articled to his father and took over his practice at the age of twenty-two when he died on 8 September 1914. He retained the existing office at 248 West George Street, and initially worked in collaboration with Robert Leslie Rollo, a former apprentice of his father's; it is not clear whether a formal partnership existed, but in any case the association was cut short by the outbreak of the First World War.

Lindsay appears to have remained in practice at the same address until at least 1940. His practice in the inter-war years was mainly domestic, concentrated in the north-western area of the city where he designed some well-detailed bungalows.
