This is interesting and I'm pleased to have discovered it. The main building of the University seen here was built in stages between 1864 and 1870, I believe. You can see from later images (for example my own recent photographs) that the tower shown here was later significantly added to.

This photograph dates to some time between 1870, when construction was completed for the present buildings, and 1879: when Bute Hall - not here visible - was completed. I hope that's a help
