Tiles in fishmongersHandsome range of neoclassical tenements with architraved first floor widows, erected during the 1870s. Generously bowed eastern corner sweeps magnificently into Kenmure Street. Locally known as Kitchin’s Corner - originally planned to include a shopping arcade. All of the ground floor flats were converted into shops by architect Thomas Baird in 1883, leaving a wide pavement area. The interior of the former fishmongers at 126 Nithsdale Road features a continuous tiled frieze depicting sailing ships and frolicking mermaids, being the finest example of work done by James Duncan & Sons in Glasgow. The famous ‘Fish Girl’ panel that originally decorated the shop’s entrance is now in the People’s Palace.
