George Douglas Brown

Period:
19th Century
Description:

This is a photograph of the author of the book The House with the Green Shutters.

 

The subject has written a humerous inscription on the photograph:

 

Ochonee, Is this me! - If it is, I ought to wear a mask.

A scouling ruffian a' his life,

As you see by the look in his eye,

He was sent to jyle for killing his wife,

And hanged on the gallows-tree.
