Period:
19th Century
Description:

This page of the sketchbook shows Terregles Church, north of Dumfries. 

 

These sketches of various buildings in and around Dumfries were mainly compiled through McCormick's own study of the area and by speaking to those who remembered the buildings, as the majority of them were no longer in existence or in a ruinous state by McCormick's time.  The drawings are all in pencil with extensive written notes.
