The image is a view of what is now the Terminus Tavern but for many years was the Strathallan Hotel. Like the Derby Castle it was built for Major Pollock and it is here that he lived in what he called Strathallan Lodge. It is a typical 1830s Victorian Gothic building with decorative barge boards and angled chimneys without pots. In 1896 the tram company obtained a licence for it and so The Strathallan Hotel was born. This view comes from an album entitled Nine Views of Douglas published by Johnson, the printer and bookseller, of 12 Prospect Hill, Douglas.
