It's fitting this photo of the National Burns Memorial and Cottage Homes should be used as the icon for this gallery. The Memorial "comprise(s) twenty cottages for deserving old people who get their accommodation free of rates and rent. This work was begun in 1888 oy the Glasgow Mauchline Society (now the National Burns Memorial and Cottage Homes) as a practical memorial to the poet, symbolising his sympathy for the genuinely unfortunate." The quoted words are from www.robertburns.org.
