Title View down the glazed corridor nicknamed the 'hen-run' high on the south facade of the Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow
Alternative Title The 'hen-run' and the skylight roof of the museum at the Glasgow School of Art, Glasgow
Abstract/Summary The image shows the interior of the glazed corridor known as the 'hen-run' looking towards the loggia at the western end. It was added in the second phase of construction to provide access at the upper level from one side of the building to the other, behind the director's studio. The skylight roof of the museum can be seen just outside the corridor structure.

Additional Notes The Glasgow School of Art was designed and built in the period coinciding with 'Federation (1890-1915)' in Australia, though it cannot truly be called a 'Federation' building as it is in Scotland. Also, sources conflict as to whether the stone used on the west, north and east facades is sandstone or granite, but its appearance is closer to sandstone so it is listed as such.
