A view of the White Cart Water and one of the parks at Pollok c 1830.
The caption has been damaged, but this may be Shaw Holm (near the point at which Pollokshaws Road crosses the Cart and Shawsholm Crescent was laid out). The artist has depicted the view looking across the river towards an open lawn and gardens in the distance. There is a wall at the right corner of the painting.
This watercolour is one of a series painted by an unknown artist working for the Maxwell family. The paintings show buildings and landscapes on the Pollok Estate.
