Glasgow: Duncan MacFarlan memorial detail
A close-up of the wording on the NS6065 : Glasgow: Duncan MacFarlan memorial. The shadowy stripe down the right-hand side almost gives the illusion of a buttress-like adornment; in fact, it is simply the shadow of another monument.

The lengthy description on the sunny side (which could not be there if the buttress were real!) states:

Principal MacFarlan
As a Minister of the Gospel was faithful and diligent; as a member of the Church of Scotland, his knowledge of its constitution and history, his zeal for its stability and extension and his sound judgment and sagacious council, in circumstances of difficulty, obtained for him the confidence and respect of his brethren, and the singular honour of having twice filled the Chair of the General Assembly.
In the University, he strenuously upheld its privileges and judiciously watched over its interests. He enjoyed the confidence of his colleagues and the respect of the students.
In the management of the public institutions of the city, his great sagacity and good sense, joined to an extensive experience and a singular aptitude for business made his services valuable while his firm adherence to principle, and his dignified yet courteous demeanour secured for him the esteem of all who had intercourse with him.
To erect this memorial of his honoured and useful life, all classes of the community cordially contributed.
