Historic Photographs Details
In 1615 Dr. William Barclay wrote a treatise extolling the virtues of the Well of Spa and commending the use of its waters to invalids. Then George Jamesone, the artist, while suffering from calculus of the bladder found relief from the mineral qualities of the well. At the beginning of the 20th. century the well was removed and re-erected inside the wall of the old Royal Infirmary, Woolmanhill and water was introduced into it from another source. Later it was moved to a nearby site behind Aberdeen City Library.
