Shaw Mill

The Shaw Mill c 1830.

The painting shows the two-arch Shaw Bridge spanning the White Cart Water at Pollokshaws. A woman is standing on stepping-stones under the bridge collecting water in a bucket and two men are standing on the bridge above her. The buildings to the right are apparently part of a meal mill and there are other buildings, perhaps houses, to the left. The bridge was demolished and replaced in the 1930s. The large goose, bottom left, is a scrap attached to the painting by an unknown person.

This watercolour is one of a series painted by an unknown artist working for the Maxwell family, depicting buildings and scenery on the Pollok Estate.
