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 Link were built on land presented to the burgh by Lord Overtoun, it was decided to locate the statue beside those buildings.
