To the left of the picture, over a roof in the foreground, appears part of the tunnel of the North British Railway, above which rises that fine classic building, the (modern) High School. It stands on the southern slope of the Gallon Hill, a portion of which is seen to the extreme left. On the extreme right is the monu- ment to Robert Burns.
