Dumbarton Municipal Buildings
The buildings had long been covered in scaffolding (NS3975 : Dumbarton Municipal Buildings), and had only recently been uncovered again.

The stonework is now noticeably cleaner: see NS3975 : Dumbarton Municipal Buildings for an earlier picture, and for the main description of the building.

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 Link now stands in the grounds, as do a Boer War Memorial Link and a statue of Peter Denny Link

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.
