Langside Av. 

Langside Hill Church (A.Skirving, 1896).

 The fashion for classical architecture which gave Glasgow so many ‘Greek temple’ churches had run its course, the wind of modernism was blowing in from the continent, and Langside Hill was the last of its kind.  The pediment had been intended to carry some relief sculpture (it is said that a scene of John Knox admonishing Queen Mary was planned!) but the money ran out and it was left unfinished. The church is now a restaurant.
