It is great news that the Knox Institute in Kilbirnie will be restored.
Here is a picture of the man who built it, Robert William Knox:
The original portrait was last seen in the “Stables Mueum” underneath the Walker Hall in the 1990s. I have been trying to get information about what happened to the stuff that was in there. I have asked North Ayrshire Council but Im not getting any replies except to say they are looking into it and that was a few years ago now.
There is also a lamp which was donated to the town by RW Knox and it sat upon one of the bridges. Last seen also in the Stables museum.

I recall seeing the lamp in a Picture once. Would it have been Gas Lit? Hopefully you are successful in your quest.
