My grandmother lived at No.25 Byres Road, a short walk from the Botanical Gardens and spent many Sunday afternoons examining the gardens with her siblings & parents. She also was courted there by my grandfather-to-be. In 2000, I was able to view the gardens building (it was unfortunately closed on my visit); however, I was able to take a few photos of this place that lived in her memories long after they emigrated to Canada in 1904.
