‘Theatre Royal, Dunlop Street’, watercolour by David Small

David Small (1846-1927) was a prolific artist, working in watercolour, and the Mitchell Library has a large collection of his views of buildings, streetscapes, and views in and around Glasgow. Small also produced illustrations for major publications such as Sketches of Quaint Bits of Old Glasgow Still Standing in the Year 1885, 1887, and By-gone Glasgow: Sketches of Vanished Corners in the City and Suburbs, 1896. Both have text by A. H. Millar.
