wulver is a mythic humanoid cave-dwelling creature with the
head of a wolf found in the folklore of several Scottish regions.
Although descriptions vary dramatically from place to place, the wulver
is commonly described as being solitary and somewhat approachable
and benign, sometimes seen fishing by river banks. Some
stories even describe wulvers as helping lost travellers find their way
and even leaving fish on the window sills of poor or starving
The lithograph also features Glasgow's Tolbooth Steeple, the last remaining section of Glasgow Tolbooth, a municipal building almost completely demolished in 1921. The steeple is almost 400 years old and is now a Category A listed building.
