Just between the Lion and Unicorn Staircase and the Memorial Chapel is the Fore Hall. The wooden panelling at the back of the room is the hallway I’ve featured before. An interesting little fact is that back in the days of the Old College, the Lion and Unicorn Staircase used to lead to the Fore Hall, and today the same is true at the Gilmorehill campus. A different type of relic, a memento of the past, if you will.
You can see a photo of the Lion and Unicorn Staircase leading to the Fore Hall from the 1870s, the final days of the Old College, on The Glasgow Story website.
