Former Glasgow District Court:
Located on the corner of Turnbull Street and St Andrew's Street at the corner of St Andrew's Square. This large brick and ashlar detailed two storey building, stepps up to three storeys and then has a final attic storey. The building was designed by Alexander Beith McDonald (1847-1915) who worked for the City Architect's office and designed many of Glasgow Corporation's public buildings. Opened in 1906 and the former home of the Central Police office, Glasgow District Court and Police museum, the building closed in 2008.
