James Lindsay
(b. 1857)
Opening his practice in 1880, at 196 St. Vincent Street, he entered the City chambers Competition of 1881, submitting a design for a mannerist Hotel de Ville (motto: Dunmore) with a Roman temple front, huge angle mansards and a Graeco-Roman tower which bears a striking, and more refined and satisfying, resemblance to that of William Young's winning design.

Most of his executed buildings have been destroyed.
