Thomas Fairbairn's painting shows the Wheat Sheaf Inn at the eastern end of Old Dumbarton Road. The inn was popular with Glaswegians who walked from the city along the Anderston Walk to Partick and the banks of the River Kelvin, to take in the scenery and the country air. It was demolished at the end of the 19th century.
