Stobhill Hospital
As described in "Stobhill Hospital The First Seventy Years" (O.M.Watt, 1971), 47 acres from Stobhill Estate had, by the end of 1899, been purchased for 6000 as a site for the new hospital. A competition was held in order to select the architects; though Thomson and Sandilands did not win, their design was used.

The contractors gave the estimate of 163,341 for the building work, which proceeded rapidly; the foundation stone (at the base of the clock tower) was laid in September of 1901, and the work was completed by 1903, although there were to be later additions to the site. The official opening was in 1904. For far more complete details, see the work just cited.

For further information, and for other views of the tower, see NS6168 : Clock Tower, Stobhill Hospital, Springburn and NS6168 : Stobhill Hospital - Clock Tower.
