There is little known about the church buildings which stood on the site of the present Cathedral until the early part of the 12th century. The first stone building was consecrated in about 1136 in the presence of King David I and his Court when John (1117-1147) was Bishop. Destroyed or severely damaged by fire, this cathedral was succeeded by a larger one consecrated in 1197. The reformation done in the early 14th century, and the next major rebuilding was come later in the 13th century. After the Reformation a wall was put across the nave to allow the western portion of the nave to be used for worship by a congregation which became known as the Outer High. This congregation worshiped in the nave from 1647 until 1835. The congregation which used the Quire was for a time called the Inner High. (A Walk through Glasgow Cathedral, The Very Revd. Dr. W. J.

I used a 6x6 Hasselblad 501C and 50mm zeiss plannar lens with yellow filter. The film was Tmax 100 rated at 64, developed in Rodinal, and the print was made on Ilford Multigrade IV FB Glossy paper developed in Dektol and ansco 120.
