The Battlefield Memorial was raised in 1887-1888 by public subscription. In the background, left, is the villa at the top of Millbrae Road, only partly visible though the trees. A cab and carriage hire business is located opposite it.

Duncan Brown (1819-1897) was a talented amateur photographer whose work documents aspects of Glasgow life from the 1850s until the 1890s.
