It is as 137 Sauchiehall Street Glasgow.  It is at the back of the building, overlooking Sauchiehall Lane. The room still exists, and I attach a photograph of it (from the opposite end) taken a couple of months ago.

This was clearly where Langfier exhibited his work, but I wonder if he took his photographs in the corresponding room at the front, overlooking Sauchiehall Street, which faces north and has a roof mostly of glass.

Charles Rennie Mackintosh

"I am interested in this building because it was designed by Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh, the architectural firm in which Charles Rennie Mackintosh was a partner.

I don't see any evidence of Mackintosh's hand in its design, though he seems to have made a design for an elaborate wrought-iron enclosure for the building's lift, which unfortunately was not carried out."
