I rather liked Kelvingrove. It was a scale down Smithsonian and doable in a few hours. Eclectic, a bit out of date and musty and a fair use for a magnificent building, which is the true star.
Agreed that those times allowed the wealthy and well connected to amass immense fortunes unimaginable today and to influence government to produce buildings and institutions equivalent to that status.
Your points are well made with concision.
