Allan & Ferguson's view (1843) of the city from Glasgow Green. The tall column of the Nelson Monument is in the centre of the view behind the Glasgow Humane Society House, with Glasgow Bridge to the left.

A dairymaid is milking a cow in the foreground of this pastoral scene, which most certainly exagerates the idyllic rural charm of an area that was becoming surrounded with smoke-belching factories by the 1840s.
