Old Photograph Waterfall Rouken Glen Scotland

Old photograph of a waterfall in Rouken Glen in Giffnock, East Renfrewshire, to the South West of Glasgow, Scotland. The glen has many of the typical features of an Edwardian urban park, such as a boating pond started in 1923 by Sir Robert McAlpine to replace a former curling pond. Rouken Glen includes a large waterfall surrounded by steep woodland; the waterfall is based on a natural waterfall, doubled in height to form a reservoir to supply the printworks downstream at Thornliebank during the early 19th century. There is a walled garden in the grounds of the former manor, Birkenshaw house.
