Quick Reference

(b Glasgow, 3 June 1867; d 10 Dec 1933). Scottish architect and designer. He attended evening classes at the Glasgow School of Art (his only formal training), and in 1888 he set up a design and decorating business known as George Walton and Co., Ecclesiastical and House Decorators. The venture was an immediate success, and over the next ten years he redecorated numerous houses and shops in Glasgow. Wider recognition came in 1896-7, when he was commissioned to fit out Miss Catherine Cranston's Buchanan Street tea-room, Glasgow. Walton made the overall interior design for the four-storey tea-rooms, and Charles Rennie Mackintosh provided the stencilled mural decoration.
