Coulter Library, near Biggar

Last week I put up several pictures of Coulter. I thought that this one that I bought recently might be of interest. It is a nice view of Coulter Library. Many of Clydesdale`s libraries were funded by the local gentry. In addition many of the small libraries such as Coulter benefited from the Ferguson bequest. The Ferguson`s were coal owners from Auchenheath and had a house at Wiston. Their mine at Auchenheath produced some fine gas coal, which helped the Ferguson`s to make plenty of money.
