Statue of Peter Denny
This statue of the shipbuilder and engineer Peter Denny is by William "Hamo" Thornycroft. It was completed in 1898, and was presented to the burgh by Mrs Denny. Later, when the Municipal Buildings LinkExternal link were built on land presented to the burgh by Lord Overtoun, it was decided to locate the statue beside those buildings.
Dumbarton Municipal Buildings
The buildings were erected on College Park (the former grounds of College Park House). The land was bought from the railway company by Lord Overtoun, and gifted by him to the burgh. The buildings, by James Thomson, were officially opened in 1903. The College Bow LinkExternal link now stands in the grounds, as do a Boer War Memorial LinkExternal link and a statue of Peter Denny LinkExternal link
