Some newspaper articles from 1869/ 1870 which suggest that the first Queen Margaret Bridge and the retaining wall where part of a single co-ordinated civil engineering project for Mr John Ewing Walker in preparation for laying out his new suburb North Kelvinside, initially known as “Kelvinside”.

Re: Honorary degrees

Whats the average age of a recipient of an honorary degree? Its merely an acknowledgement of a lifetimes contribution to something meaningful, and dare i say, worthwhile... and if it raises the profile of an institution, then its a couple a hunner quid well spent.

Re: Hotels...too many or not enough?

Too many hotels? can you imagine how many hotels and hostelries were in Glasgow say 100 years ago? A hotel, like a corner shop, or an ice cream van, won't open or operate somewhere if there isnt a business case for it. How is it possible to have too many hotels? I can't figure the logic here.
