091122 Bangor University



Another of the photographs I took in North Wales last week. This is the main building of what is now called Bangor University. You may be interested to know that it was originally called the "University College of North Wales" (Coleg Prifysgol Gogledd Cymru in Welsh). It later became "University College, Bangor" (Coleg y Brifysgol, Bangor) and then "University of Wales, Bangor" (Prifysgol Cymru, Bangor) before settling on "Bangor University" (Prifysgol Bangor). But there again you might not be interested in knowing this and simply want to look at the photograph.

I liked the photograph as well, Alan, They don't build like that any more, more's the pity. I'm glad you translated the Welsh to English.

I thought it was a cathedral. I would never have guessed the language.

All I want to know professor is that will there be a quiz???? It is funny how names on places evolve. The building is majestic sitting among the trees. Our little town was named after men as different additions before they actually had a post office official gave the town the name of Woodward. We actually live in the Coltan part of town. Take care.
