Partly financed by the International Exhibition of 1888, the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum was built in 1901 by the English architects Sir J.W. Simpson and E.J. Milner Allen. Following the Glasgow tradition of red sandstone buildings, it was built of Locharbriggs sandstone in a Spanish Baroque style and its main entrance faces onto the River Kelvin Valley while the most used doorway is on Sauchiehall Street, which has given rise to the mistaken belief that the building was built the wrong way round. Originally intended to house a concert hall and an art school, it was opened in 1902 without either function.
