Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Glasgow Core: Photo 43
How's this for an unlikely pair? Atop the column, and wondering how to get down, is Walter Scott. He's been there since 1837, five years after Scott's death. In the foreground is Field Marshall Colin Campbell, AKA Lord Clyde, who was born in Glasgow and went on to play a pivotal role in saving the Britain's Indian Empire. The statues have just about outlived the fame of the men they portray. So, too, the sculptors. John Greenshields designed the Scott figure, and John Foley designed and executed the Campbell. Foley sculpted the figure of Prince Albert that sits in London's Albert Memorial, but much of Foley's work was in Ireland and was destroyed with Irish independence.
