Photograph is mounted on 20 x 26 cm mounting board. Inscription in ink, verso, full page. Incripstion reads: "Statue of the Master unveiled by Sir Hector Clare Cameron, his earliest and latest left House Surgeon in the Glasglow Royal Infirmary in Kelvingrove Park - hard by Lord Kelvin's own [statue] - on the 17th Sept., 1924. Sir Donald MacAlister, Principal and V[ice] C[ancellor] of the University assisting. (For an account of the ceremory see the Glasglow Herald of 18th Sept. 1924, and the Edinburgh Scotsman of the same date). The University Buildings are in the background. It was contemplated to erect this statue in the Courtyard of the (New) Royal Infirmary near the Lister Ward - the incunabula of Modern Surgery - if the managers of the infirmary has not dilapidated that building, demolished in June 1924. But it is probably better where it is amongst scenes and surroundings where the Master did much of his cogitation. This photograph was a gift from Prof. Archibald Barr FRS., Glasg[ow], and from discipilo in discipulum John Stewart who accompanied Lister and Watson Cheyne from Edinburgh to King's College, London."
