Famous Scots - The White Lady

The White Lady has gained a unique and mysterious reputation. It is the resting place of John S Smith, carpet manufacturer, his wife Magdalene and their housekeeper Mary McNaughton.

On 29th October 1933 while returning from church to their home at Langside Avenue, sheltering from the heavy rain behind an umbrella, they walked into the path of a tramcar on Queen's Drive. Magdalene died on arrival at the Victoria Infirmary and Mrs Mc Naughton passed away two weeks later.
