  • Scottish Art
Drummond, a clergyman of the Scottish Episcopal Church, had a genuine interest in botany and geology. The photograph of Mr Currie on the hillside in his bath chair is a picture of the determined explorer engaging in fieldwork. He may be a botanist himself seeking out wild plants in the hills. The care of his friends may just be seen in the small stones stopping the wheels of the chair on a dangerous downward slope.
