Well in Stockwell Street

Empty casks and barrels outside cottages occupied by a cooper and a tavern keeper at 105 Stockwell Street, c 1820. The row was on the east side of the street, nearly opposite Jackson Street, on the former site of Glasgow's cattle market.

A sign above the door on the building on the left identifies Robert Jaferay's "Wine and Spirit Cellar", and above it the home of W Grant. On the neighbouring building there is a sign for Alexander Young.

In front of the building is the Stock Well, opened in 1638 and encased in a protective wooden structure. Behind, towering above the scene, is the Merchants' Steeple in Bridgegate.
