St. George's Church, Edinburgh

Perspective drawing of church. Thomson submitted this design in competition with John Honeyman, whose Gothic Revival entry won the commission for a new church in Edinburgh to be know as St. George's Free Church. There are similarities with the St. Vincent Street church in Glasgow, the massive podium and tall tower, for example.

Design for Albert Memorial

Perspective drawing for Albert Memorial. Prince Albert died in Dec 1861 and designs were invited for a memorial hall and monument. It is not clear whether this perspective represents one of these or a combination of both. The base is an immense podium with battered sides, on it another podium with couchant lions at each corner, above this rises a single-story block with battered walls, each side pierced with a bank of linked windows, the tower culminating in a ribbed dome. The immense size of the battered doorways and the low relief on the walls recalls Egyptian temples. The competition was won by Sir Gilbert Scott.
