Description: Cowglen, near Thornliebank, 3 miles south-west of Glasgow. Renfrewshire. Shallow stoop and room workings in Main or Rough Coal, exposed during excavations at New Fever Hospital site. Looking east-south-east, approximately in the direction of the dip. Showing old pillars of coal and mouths of galleries. The white top to some of the pillars is an ironstone rib. The steam from the sitting workmen's braziers could indicate they are having their 'pieces'. During pipe-track laying in the floor of the seam, a further subsidence took place, a shallow pit was then dug and an underlying coal was found 6 ft. below the upper and corresponding to the Stinking Coal of the Cowglen succession.
