The Community Council has facilitated the suggestion by the Donaldson Area Amenity Association of a plaque in Devon place, which was previously the site of a former schoolhouse that served as an early studio for post-impressionist painter Samuel John Peploe (1871-1935), the most successful of the four members of the influential group known as the Scottish Colourists.
