The Mausoleum of Burns, Dumfries, c 1850

A steel plate engraving from a painting by D O Hill  of the mausoleum erected in Robert Burns' memory in St Michael's churchyard, Dumfries.   Burns Mausoleum became a place of pilgrimage for visitors to Dumfries. This view of the mausoleum is engraved from a painting by D O Hill and shows the mausoleum in a corner of the old churchyard with gravestones of both earlier and later dates in the foreground.     At the time this was printed the development of steel plate engraving made it possible for images to be reproduced in much greater numbers than previous printing technology had allowed.
