"The Fountain". The Whitelaw Fountain is a good example of a later 19th century ornate, classically detailed drinking fountain with finely carved stone detailing. Hugh Haugh MacLure (d. 1892) was an architect and civil engineer working from Sauchiehall Street in Glasgow who predominantly worked on Railways and road bridges and also wrote `The Sewage of Glasgow and Neighbourhood'. The fountain is dedicated to Alexander Whitelaw, industrialist and partner in the local firm of Gartsherrie Iron, who in 1872 organised the relocation of the railway line away from the main street to create a civic space. The original location of the fountain was in front of the Royal Hotel at the point of the removed railway approximately 100 yards to the W of where it stands today; it was moved due to incidents with increasing traffic. Inscriptions to the granite panels read: `This fountain stands on the site of the level crossing of the Monkland and Kirkintilloch railway which was removed 1872' and `Created by subscription in honour of Alexander Whitelaw Esq (MP') In recognition of the many valuable services rendered by him in the community. Inaugurated 10th August 1875' When fully working the fountain had metal drinking cups attached to each basin (now infilled) on a chain with constantly flowing drinking water for the public.
