The Lum

DSC_0512.jpg

The Caird Hall chimney not as grand as the previous Cox’s Stack but fairly decent.
Named after Sir James Caird who had gifted £100,000 pounds to the building of a new city hall and council chambers. He also sponsored Sir Ernest Shackleton’s attempt to cross the South Pole. The boat that the crew heroically sailed to safety was named the James Caird in his honour.

For those not in Scotland lum is a Scottish word for chimney, who knows where that came from.
