Northern Assurance Company's Building, 84-94 St Vincent Street, Glasgow
In the early part of the 20th century, the so-called 'curse of the Northern' was rumoured to affect architects who designed the company's buildings. The architect appointed to design the company's London office died during building work and his replacement was seized by an illness from which he never recovered. John Archibald Campbell (1859-1909), architect of 84-94 St Vincent Street, also died during its construction, adding to the myth.
