Potterfield

Children on the green at the Whins of Potterfield, photographed by Duncan Brown c 1890s.

The Whins of Potterfield was a hamlet which stood at the junction of Haggs Road and Whins Road. At one time its inhabitants were miners who worked at the nearby Lochinch pit. A riding school now occupies the site of the pit, near Dumbreck Road. Haggs Castle is just visible on the left behind the thatched cottage.

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