‘Corner’stone of Elder Park library, which is also located in the SE corner of Elder Park, in Govan, Glasgow. It was opened in 1903, by the infamous Dunfermline born philanthropist, Andrew Carnegie.
Paradoxically, it was Mrs Isabella Elder, widow of the renowned Glaswegian shipbuilder and engineer, John Elder, who actually funded the building of the library. Andrew Carnegie, never actually opened, any of his many grand Glaswegian Carnegie libraries.
I’ve only just realised, that “Corner” was last weeks WordPress challenge, but this post also fits in pretty well with this weeks Photo Challenge, ‘structure’. Most people see the old library, and think it looks nice, but many don’t notice these wonderful stone engravings.
