Associated papers

Three stapled sheets of typewritten paper include William Meldrum's brief biography and descriptions of two specific works. It also includes the custodial histories of the paintings: they were presented to the Glasgow Corporation in April 1966, after Meldrum's death. The final sheet illustrates a simple drawing of Glasgow street map, indicating where Meldrum may have depicted the view of Glasgow in the 1900s.

The description specifically details two undated watercolour landscape paintings titled "Cumbernauld Road at Riddrie, Glasgow." These paintings depict the same location, each viewed in the summer and winter.

The two associated paintings are currently in storage at Glasgow Museums Resources Centre.
