Ronald Harrison was a student architect who worked in the office of Keppie Henderson in the 1930s. While there he made a series of tracings from original designs in the practice. These now provide our only record of a number of projects. The Pettigrew & Stephens building, on Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, was formerly known as Manchester House. The dome and finial from the building are displayed in the Sculpture Courtyard at the Hunterian - see GLAHA 52473 and 52960.
