from WR&S's Waterette Series from the early 1900s.
This picture is based on a watercolour painting by J Douglas. This name,
J Douglas, RSW, appears at the
bottom-right of the picture.

James Douglas of Dundee (1858-1911) who
studied in Edinburgh.
Several of his paintings have
also been reproduced as Cynicus postcards. Others have
been reproduced as postcards by W R
From 1895 to 1897 James
Douglas lived and worked in Rothenburg, Germany, and from 1904 to 1908 he
exhibited at the Tayport Art Circle in Dundee.
He was elected RSW in 1900 but
seems to have been struck off in 1907 as a result of mental illness which
led to his confinement. He exhibited some 76 works at the Royal
Scottish Academy in Edinburgh between 1881 and 1907.
