Former Greenock Central Library

This wonderful mural is part of the former Greenock Central Library in Clyde Square, just across from the Municipal Buildings.

The fibreglass frieze is situated above what was the the main entrance and was designed by the artist and sculptor Charles Anderson.

The building itself was designed by the then burgh architect and town planner, James Watson.  This beautiful green slate covers the remainder of the facade.

The Library was opened in July 1970 by the author Eric Linklater.

Greenock's central library is now situated in a different building.  The local council have retained this building - not sure what its use will be.

Joining up with others over at Monday Mural.
