Jubilee Fountain

The postcard shown here shows the Jubilee Fountain set up in the late Victorian period to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee of 1887. It was made by the firm of McDowall Steven &  Co. It was a striking feature of the main street in Biggar and was sent for scrap in the last war, though some parts are reputed to still survive.

The card was published by a local stationer Jackson at the turn of the 20th century.
