Lion Chambers, at 172 Hope Street, was the second reinforced concrete building in Glasgow. It was designed by James Salmon II and John Gaff Gillespie, and built in 1904-07. The client was William G Black, a lawyer and member of the Glasgow Art Club, intended the offices for lawyers and the top floor for artists's studios. The statues are pre-cast concrete judges' heads. This building is now in very poor critical condition - covered in steel mesh and secured.
