The University of Glasgow, in Miniature
The model of the West End featured yesterday didn’t really demonstrate the correct size ration of the buildings on Gilmorehill too well, but there is another miniature model to be found which does that task pretty well. Right by the Visitor Centre in the Main Building is a sizable miniature model of the entire Gilmorehill campus.
The photos, from top to bottom, are taken from roughly the North, West, South and East. In the first photo (North) you can clearly make out the University Library, the Adam Smith Building, Bute Gardens, Lilybank House and the Hetherington Building. The second photo (West) is dominated by the Joseph Black Building and you can clearly compare the sizes of the Main Building and the University Library. The third photo (South) shows the South Front of the Main Building and the Principal’s Lodging. The fourth photo (East) covers most of the campus, and allows for another size comparison of the two largest structures on campus, mercifully leaving the Boyd Orr Building hidden behind the library.
Sorry for the extra large photo, it was the only way I could fit all four angles into this one photo. I could easily spend ages peering at the miniature version of the University.
