Observatory Streaks (June 19: 171/365)




Looking down Observatory Road at sunset. The name roots from when the University of Glasgow’s Observatory was located in Dowanhill from 1845 to 1939*, before moving north to Acre Road, near the Garscube Campus.

*Some documentation I came across suggest that the Observatory and its lands were sold in 1937 for the sum of £10,000, with the Observatory being used for teaching until April 1st 1938.
