May 1879: New Public Halls to be Renamed the St Andrew’s Halls

An article on page seven of The Glasgow Herald, on Wednesday the 21st of May, 1879, reads:


“NEW PUBLIC HALLS. —We understand the directors have agreed that the New Public Halls shall in future

be known as the St Andrew’s Halls. The finest hall in England is called the St George, and the directors of the

New Halls, adapting perhaps this suggestion, have resolved to give their suite of halls the name of the patron

saint of Scotland. We also understand the rates of charge for letting the halls have been carefully revised, and

that considerable reductions are to be made.”
