Notes NOTES: James Salmon junior worked under his father, William Forest Salmon (1843-1911), and John Gaff Gillespie (b. 1870) in the firm of James Salmon & Son. He was given much of the design responsibility for this building, which became the office of the firm. Although he became a partner in the firm in 1898, neither his name nor that of Gillespie was acknowledged in the practice title until November 1903 when the firm became Salmon Son & Gillespie.
