Abstract:
A rapid standing building survey was undertaken of two rooms within the Fyfe and McGrouther building, 280 Kennedy Street, Glasgow in response to the uncovering of unusual cast iron cornicing during demolition works. The level 1 standing building survey was commissioned by Glasgow Museums who also recovered part of the cast iron work. The relief decorated cast iron sections being used as cornicing dated to the original phase of the building, as the purpose built Sun Foundry (constructed in 1871). Background research has shown that the sections of relief decorated cast iron, present as cornicing, were originally designed and cast for a Sun Foundry bandstand design known as 'Bandstand Number 1'. A recently restored bandstand of this design and cast by the Sun Foundry is present in Victoria Park, City of Hamilton, Bermuda.
