Stuart J Campbell, Andy McEwan & Dorothy Wilson, 2018. John Allan, Architect, Stirling (1847-1922), Stirling Local History Society, Stirling (48pp with back-cover foldout map).
John Allan remains the most distinctive architect in the Stirling area with buildings such as the former Hay's Music Shop on Friars' Street and the Wolf Craig Building (see illustration). The style and decorative detail sometimes appear quirky - but his use of methods and materials was often innovative. This well-produced and copiously-illustrated text adds substantially to previous knowledge.
