EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative Victorian-era photograph captures the serene beauty of Greenock Highland Mary's Grave, located in the historic Scottish town of Greenock. The image transports us back in time to the late 19th or early 20th century, as indicated by the Edwardian-era clothing and the use of a lantern slide. Greenock Highland Mary was a legendary figure in Scottish folklore, believed to be a Highland warrior woman who was shipwrecked off the coast of Greenock in the late 16th century. According to local legend, she was found washed up on the shore, clad in full Highland regalia, and was buried with full military honors. Over the centuries, her grave became a popular pilgrimage site for Scots seeking to pay their respects to this legendary heroine. In this photograph, we see a group of visitors gathered around the grave, their Edwardian attire and the use of a lantern slide suggesting that this may have been a popular tourist destination during the Victorian period. The grave is adorned with flowers and wreaths, and the mood is one of quiet reverence and respect. The trees in the background are bare, indicating that this may have been taken in the autumn or winter months. This photograph is part of The Keasbury-Gordon Photograph Archive Collection from Mary Evans Prints Online, and it offers a fascinating glimpse into the past, providing us with a window into the history and culture of Scotland during the Victorian era. Whether you are a history buff, a fan of Scottish folklore, or simply someone who appreciates the beauty of the past, this photograph is sure to captivate and inspire you.
