Newbery Tower

Say goodbye to Glasgow School of Art's Newbery Tower
which, along with the Foulis Building are about to be
demolished to make way for a brand new Art School
building. The Newbery Tower was home to Printed and
Knitted Textiles, Embroidery and Weaving, and
Silversmithing. There was also the Ref. I taught drawing
and colour to Textile students on short term contracts
for some years. More importantly...whilst a student in
the Mackintosh building I often found myself in the Textile
Department where there were a large number of good
looking young ladies. Ah...those were the days.
