Lady Colebrooke’s Workshop

The company of W.H Scott did a large number of postcards of Lanarkshire. This is a rarer example of their work.

Lady Colebrooke’s workshop is shown on many cards of Glengonnar House but never by itself. It was built at the same time as Glengonnar House which had been built to replace the previous Glengonnar house which had been destroyed by fire.

It had been designed by the architect John Stewart and constructed in what was referred to as the cottage style. But in fact the house and the outbuildings were powered by electricity. It was constructed at the beginning of the 20th century and was visited by King Edward VII.
