      There are various statues of William Wallace, but this structure is known as the Wallace Monument.

      Thanks, stephenbuchan. Will investigate and update catalog record as appropriate to reflect identification as Wallace Monument.

      I grew up a short walk away from the Wallace Monument and this picture confuses me. The Abby Craig is steep and there is no lake/pool close by. This photo, if it is a photo, was taken half way up a steep hill so, even if it was drained when they build the road, I don't see how such a pool could exist at all.

      Cak3ster's girlfriend:

      Interesting! While the images are not color photographs, they do start life as black-and-white photographs, and have color added by lithographic means, so the image can be believed in that sense. (You can even see the reflection of the man on the side and the tower in the water.) Perhaps there was a retaining wall or other method of keeping that water in place at the time of the photograph. It's difficult to say!
