Catalogue entry

The subject is continued on folio 24 recto opposite (D02958). Not having been the seat of a bishop since 1690, the building is technically the Presbyterian Church of St Mungo, who founded Glasgow in the late sixth century, or in an alternative dedication, of St Kentigern, though it is still widely known as Glasgow Cathedral. Another view of it is on folios 24 verso–25 recto (D02959–D02960).
