Your University, One Photo at a Time

From the Stewart Memorial Fountain to the Tower

From the Stewart Memorial Fountain to the Tower
An different view of the University Tower, from the Stewart Memorial Fountain in Kelvingrove Park. Must go attempt this shot again one day, and at the time my only camera was a cellphone (5mp N95, so not the crappiest cameraphone around back then).

The fountain was erected in 1872, to commemorate Lord Provost Stewart of Murdostoun, who was instrumental in the delivery of Glasgow’s fresh water supply system from Loch Katrine, a bit north of Loch Lomond. The granite, sandstone, marble and bronze fountain was extensively restored in the late 1980s after years of neglect and disuse, after which it was vandalized and closed down. After been closed again for restoration, the fountain opened again last October.
