Basic Biographical Details

Name: J Hinton Gall & Son
Born: Before 1929(?)
Bio Notes: John Hinton Gall was born in 1848 and articled to William Ormiston of Cousin & Ormiston, Edinburgh from 1864 to 1868, attending classes at the Royal Institution. He assisted in offices in Galashiels, Glasgow and Edinburgh before becoming chief assistant to William Lawrie of Matthews & Lawrie in Inverness in 1872. When Lawrie died in 1887, Gall inherited the Inverness practice which he continued under his own name, Matthews withdrawing completely from that branch of the firm.

Gall was admitted LRIBA in the mass intake of 20 July 1911, his proposers being Alexander Ross, Robert John Macbeth and William Laidlaw Carruthers. He applied for Fellowship of the RIBA in March 1928 at the very late age of 79 , and was admitted a few months later. He died in the following year. The practice was continued by his son under the name J Hinton Gall & Son; it is unclear whether this title was adopted following the elder Gall's death or at an earlier date.
