Inverness in 1867 is seen as a small compact town important as the gateway to The Highlands and a transport hub. Although the industrial revolution has not had a major impact in the way of large scale manufacture there is evidence of modern commercial and technological developments with two foundries, a steam joinery and a soap and candle works. Apart from the earlier construction of the Caledonian Canal, the main impact on the town has been the recent arrival of the railway with its impressive station, large workshop, engine house and goods shed. New wealth to the town has enabled an emerging middle class to build the many large detached houses in their own grounds along the riverside to the south. The town exudes a quiet settled comfortable ease set in a magical landscape but the population is inevitably riddled with the well documented Victorian social and economic contradictions. One of the most prominent buildings to the south of the town, and certainly with the largest text label, is the Poorhouse.
