An article on page four of The Glasgow Herald, on Saturday the 25th of March, 1865, reads:


“GLASGOW INDUSTRIAL SCHOOLS. – Through the kindness of the committee of management of the

Institute of the Fine Arts, the inmates of the Industrial Schools, Rottenrow , were admitted, free of

charge, on Wednesday afternoon, to the Exhibition of Paintings, now open in the Corporation Galleries.

The children were accompanied by the officials connected with the Institution, and several of the

directors were also present, when a vote of thanks was proposed to the committee for their kindness, amid

the loud cheers of the children, numbering upwards of 200. The school band was in attendance, which

attracted much notice from the visitors present.”
