Old Photograph Steam Train Luckie Mucklebackit Dundee Scotland

Old photograph of the steam train Luckie Mucklebackit in the railway station in Dundee, Scotland. Luckie Mucklebackit is a character in The Antiquary, a novel by Sir Walter Scott about several characters including an antiquary: an amateur historian, archaeologist and collector of items of dubious antiquity. The gothic novel, is redolent with family secrets, stories of hidden treasure and hopeless love, with a mysterious, handsome, young man, benighted aristocracy and a night time funeral procession to a ruined abbey. The romance and mystery is counterpoised by some of Scott's more down to earth characters, and grittily unromantic events.
