Its the principal building from the 1888 Exhibition held at Kelvingrove. Building covered a huge area, roughly from the Cameronians memorial all the way to Gray Street and was a temporary building. The current Kelvingrove museum was built for the 1901 International Exhibition and was funded by the profits of the 1888 exhibition

How the hell does something that size become temporary ?

Oh I get it, changing rooms made it out of MDF

I have seen a book of photos of both the 1901 and 1911 Exhibitions.
