The University of Glasgow, c 1972.

This picture illustrates the University's expansion since moving to Gilmorehill in 1870. The original Gilmorehill Building, designed by George Gilbert Scott is in the centre, with the south front overlooking Kelvingrove Park. Newer buildings have been constructed to the east, west and spreading north over University Avenue into Hillhead.

University Avenue runs past the north side of the Gilbert Scott Building. The extension of the University into Hillhead began in earnest in 1959 with the Modern Languages Building, and drew to end in the late 1970s with the Hunterian Art Gallery (opened in 1978).
