Dalmarnock Iron Works

My grandfather worked at the Dalmarnock Iron works. I am looking for any information about the site in the early 20th Century.

There are some good photographs here http://canmore.rcahms.gov.uk/en/s...amp;keyword=dalmarnock+iron+works.  The building is currently used by a company called Possilpark Shotblasters, the interior looks as though it hasn;t changed much since the early 20th century.

Cleopatra,Dalmarnock Iron Works, I was thinking it was Arrols

How early did your Grandfather work there, what did he do?
Providing its not that easly in the 20th centuary, my pal who served his time in Arrols  may be able to help

Hi Cleopatra,

We've talking about this offline for several months and all I can offer you is this link:

Sir William Arroll Founded the Dalmarnock Iron Works around 1868 for the construction and fabrication of many Iron structures.
The legacy of Sir William Arrol can be seen in the many bridges, cranes and engineering workshops that are still in existence with many still in use: in particular the Forth Bridge, Tower Bridge and Tay Bridge. Sir William created a company which continued, long after his death, to produce and construct "Arrol built" bridges, buildings and cranes that were exported worldwide.

Some surviving examples of his work have become world icons of engineering. The Forth Bridge and Clydebank's Titan crane are classed as World Civil Engineering Landmarks by the American Societies of Civil and Mechanical Engineers.
