The nine photographs in the album depict details of Ernest Philipp Fleischer's Panorama of the Battle of Bannockburn, a panorama painted in Munich in 1888 to coincide with the International Exhibition of Industry, Science and Art (1888, Glasgow). The panorama was exhibited in a rotunda at 326-328 Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow, 1888-1890, at the Scottish Panorama, Manchester in 1892, and at Sauchiehall Street again in 1898. Portions of the panorama now line the walls of the Bannockburn Room and the Bruce Lounge at Peebles Hydro (hotel).
