A Final Piece of Heraldry on the Exterior of the Kelvingrove

At long last, having walked all the way around the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, just before we go in an entry, we find one more coat of arms.

It is, of course, a variant of the arms of the City of Glasgow, mostly just missing the fish on the shield. The bird is in the leaves of the tree; hard to spot for certain, but there. And it has the fish supporters, so it may be they thought a third fish, on the shield, was overkill.

Next time, we'll start poking around inside to see what heraldry we may find there.
