ON PRINT - The name of the famous 'Corner'
of Westminster Abbey has been given locally
to the small house, shown towards the right
of the picture, where Thomas Watson spent
many years of his life, and where he died.
Adjoining is one of the old hostelries of
the town, the Market Place Inn. Part of the
enclosing railings of the British Linen Company's
Branch Bank are seen in the picture.
The larger building in the view is the Old
Mill which forms part of the extensive spinning
works of Burnside (Messrs. Alex. Gordon &
Co.). The drinking fountain in front is that
which was gifted to the town by the trustees
of the late Mr. William Gibson, Maules Bank.
