Your University, One Photo at a Time

The Long Winter of Lord Kelvin

The Long Winter of Lord KelvinLord Kelvin, one of the most influential people associated with the University of Glasgow, passed 83 years ago on December 17th. I’ve featured William Thomson, better known as Lord Kelvin, before, so instead of repeating what I’ve said before I’ll add a few more of his achievements and interesting litte factoids, including some things he got very wrong.

The above statue, covered in snow, is located in Kelvingrove Park, in the shadow of the University’s Main Building.
