The walk to the Mansion House, c. 1910
The Mansion House, sometimes also known as Thornliebank House, was the grand residence of the owners of the estate which became Rouken Glen park. After the park was opened to the public, the house was used in part as a tea room, and also for entertaining dignitaries such as Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald, who with his daughter Ishbel, was entertained to dinner and music there in June 1924.
