Kilmarnock House Industrial School

 Kilmarnock House was the comfortable townshouse of the Boyd family, the EArls of Kilmarnock, which became their home after a fire devastated Dean Castle in 1735. It has since been pulled down but stood opposite the new Sheriff Court in the town.  It later became a ragged school around 1875 and then later still, as in this image, the Kilmarnock Industrial School.  The boys in the foreground are probably some of the pupils there.
