Pencil drawing of an ‘ancient doorway' in Galway city. A boy is sitting in front of the closed door, and a woman is standing on the right-hand side of the doorway.
According to Tim Robinson 'Details of the figures show that Scott's sketch of the "ancient doorway" is copied from one in the Handbook to Galway, Connemara, and the Irish Highlands, ill. Jas. Mahony (London and Dublin 1854).' (A Survey of the Martin Estate. Dublin: The Lilliput Press, 1995, p. 94).
