Tribute to a great Glaswegian

TOM Honeyman brought the Burrell Collection and Salvador Dali's Christ of St John of the Cross to Glasgow and is arguably the most influential cultural figure in the city's history.

And today a garden dedicated to the former director of Glasgow Art Galleries and Museums is to be officially reopened, after it was restored to its former glory.

The garden, at a site in Kelvingrove Park which is overlooked by the museum he led between 1939 and 1954, was originally opened in 1973, two years after Dr Honeyman's death at the age of 80.

Jack Webster, pictured,who interviewed Dr Honeyman shortly before his death and has published a biography of the former GP, will today rededicate the garden.
