Basic Biographical Details
|Grant & Gardner
|John Alexander William Grant was born in 1885 and worked as an apprentice and/or assistant in the Honeyman & Keppie practice. Between 1913 and 1915, when his office was at 136 Wellington Street, he was responsible for the Westerton Housing Estate, Bearsden, for which he consulted Raymond Unwin, and his practice continued to consist largely of housing thereafter. Between 1914 and 1915 he was in partnership with his contemporary Albert Victor Gardner (whom he mave have met at Glasgow School of Art). They operated as Grant & Gardner and it may be that Grant asked Gardner to assist with the workload generated by the Westerton job.
Albert Victor Garder was born in Gloucestershire early in 1884. He studied at Glasgow School of Art. It is not yet known to which practice he was articled but he commenced independent practice in 1908. The partnership with Grant was dissolved in about 1915, he practised on his own until the end of the First World War but in 1919 he entered into partnership with William Riddell Glen.
