The only place I can think of would be Shaw McInnes which was a foundry and it sat on the corner of Pamure St and Firhill Rd. Mary

Right at the top of Firhill Rd at the park gate on the right hand site is Leny Street.At the end of the street was a small foundry also owned by Shaw and McInnes.It was basically an over flow for the main work.My late father worked in the place for 40 years.It was a Victorian pit.

Many thanks, i had often passed it on my way to firhill and
heard such strange noises coming out of it, i wondered what
it was.
If you know any history connected to the iron works, i'd be grateful if you
could post.
Thanks.

Eddy thanks for putting this picture on,it certainly brought back memories because that big door at the shed was where my dad worked.I used to go in there as a teenager to get a few pounds pocket money.
It was a manky,dusty place and the work was really heavy.My dad had not an ounce of fat on him as he was constantly winching heavy pipes,he never complained.
The foundry managed to survive all the ravages other companies faced when Scottish industry was being decimated but I think it finally went down the tubes in 2000.
There is a brief history on the University of Glasgow Archive website.
