'John Honeyman & Keppie made alterations and additions to one of Glasgow's two Houses of Shelter for Females. The Whitevale Street premises were designed by John Honeyman in the late 1870s. These charitable houses offered accommodation and employment in laundries for women recently released from the nearby Duke Street Prison. The first phase of work added a reception room and three bedrooms to an existing two-storey house. The second phase included the construction of a new laundry chimney, alterations and repairs' (Mackintosh website).
