The West End, in Miniature
You run into these miniature versions of cities and parts of cities all over the place. In Glasgow I’ve come across three of them already: on Buchanan Street, by the Glasgow Cathedral, and this one by the Kelvingrove Museum. You can clearly see the two largest buildings in the area, somewhat oversized here, the Main Building of the University of Glasgow and the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. The largest singular feature which takes up most of the model is Kelvingrove Park and the line that squiggles through it is the Kelvin River. You can kinda make out the University Library behind the Main Building, although were all the buildings to scale, it should be a lot bigger, just as the Boyd Orr Building should, whereas here it’s pretty much non-existent.
