Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum is popular with Glasgow residents and visitors alike. It opened in 1901 when it formed part of the Glasgow International Exhibition. More recently, it has recently undergone major refurbishment and restoration, reopening in 2006 after three years of work.
There is plenty to see, including the crowd-pulling Salvador Dali’s Christ of St John of the Cross, but this Spitfire has numerous fans too. The F21 was developed towards the end of World War II and the one on display flew with the 602 (City of Glasgow) Auxiliary Squadron between 1947 and 1949.
