Anderson College and Thurso Street
The building with the yellow cones in front of it is the Anderson College, named after a Natural Philosophy Professor at the University from the late 1700s, John Anderson. His final will left instructions and the majority of his estate to the founding of a second University in Glasgow, the University of Strathclyde, which was founded the year of his death, 1796. I’ve shown the detail before, back last October.
Just a bit further to the right on Dunbarton Road is Partick Bridge over the River Kelvin, along with one of the nicest views of the Main Building of the University. Can’t believe I have yet to post a photo of that view here. Thurso Street, by the way, is home to the University Archives.
