Glasgow – a key part of the life of James Watt – has been profiled by HeraldNet – the website of The Daily Herald in Washington in the United States.
The article notes the Watt statue in George Square (pictured above) and says the city is “Scotland’s most underrated destination”.
It says: “This once-run-down city feels revitalized, and Glaswegians (sounds like “Norwegians”) are eager to give visitors a warm welcome.”
Watt spent his early career working at the University of Glasgow. The University is planning a series of events to mark the 200th anniversary of Watt’s death in 2019.
There are also plans for a new exhibition featuring Watt at the City’s Riverside Museum in the autumn of 2019.
