Title Facade of the Willow Tea Rooms, Glasgow
Abstract/Summary The Willow Tea Room at Sauchiehall Street was the last of four tea rooms designed by Mackintosh for Miss Kate Cranston. The ground floor is now occupied by a jewellery shop but the rest of the building has been restored to serve its original function. The long casement window on the first floor gives light to the Room de Luxe.
