Basic Biographical Details

Name: James Macintyre (or McIntyre)
Designation: Architect
Bio Notes: James Macintyre was living at Parkview, Giffen, by Beith in 1906, at which time he was working in a brief partnership with George Arthur Boswell who had recently commenced practice in Glasgow. The partnership appears to have been short-lived, their only known work being the reconstruction of the former Britannia Music Hall in Trongate, Glasgow to form the Panopticon. The client for this was the building's new owner A E Pickard - "a 'character' who drove a Buick with a windscreen which could only be seen out of so that the car apparently travelled along Sauchiehall Street driverless… he discharged his accounts in threepenny pieces in canvas bags" - who became one of Boswell's principal clients. Nothing is known of James Macintyre/McIntyre after this time.
