    • It is fascinating – but the Mackintosh photo is going to be some practical use today so it’s now officially my favourite! I’m a tour guide on a women’s history walk today which passes the site of Pettigrew and Stephens, where many 19th century ladies would have shopped. We have a drawing of the building to show, and now a photograph too.
