Lord Provost Mearns' Garden Party
Daniel Mearns (1838-12th February 1913) served as Provost of Aberdeen from 1895-1898.

He was the youngest son of a shipmaster in Aberdeen, also called Daniel Mearns, and worked as a ship chandler in the firm of Mr P. Buyers at Regent Quay.

He entered the city council in 1876 and was also a member of the Harbour Board up until his death. He was involved in many schemes to improve the city such as encouraging the Corporation to purchase tramways and the construction of the larger market.

Mearns also served on the Scottish Fishery Board and the Marine Board, was Consul to Argentina and a Governor of Robert Gordon's Technical College.

In this photograph we can see Mearns in the centre of the frame, in a top-hat, hosting a garden party.
