Old Houses, Byres Road

Footnote (1)

    Napier (Notes and Reminiscences relating to Partick, Glasgow, 1873) gives us D. Y. C.'s little group in an earlier state — the central two-storey house still thatched ; to the left, on the site of D Y.C.'s two modern cottages slated and commonplace, a picturesque cottage thatched and quaint ; the Loan itself still careless of line or level. Napier also, besides views of several cottages on the Castlehill, gives us effigies of the Old Brig of Partick (elsewhere depicted) and of many vanished bits of old Partick (not elsewhere preserved).
