Empire Exhibition Monument, Bellahouston Park.

This solid granite column is a memorial to the Empire Exhibition of 1938. From this high point in the park there is a great view over the southside of the City of Glasgow.

The inscription reads : "This stone marking the site of the Empire Exhibition of 1938 was unveiled by King George VI on 9th July 1937, when His Majesty and Queen Elizabeth paid their first visit of their reign to the City of Glasgow".

Off to make dinner ......
