Scope and Content Detail of central doorway of north façade, India Tyre Factory, Greenock Road, Inchinnan, Renfrewshire The India Tyre Company employed Wallis, Gilbert & Partners to design their offices at Inchinnan, across the River Clyde from Clydebank. The design of these offices, opened in 1930, was modelled on the architects' pioneering Firestone Factory in London. This shows the main entrance to the offices between an impressive pair of giant columns. The original range of offices was 15 bays long divided by columns like those seen here, with green, gold and red tiled bases and capitals. The doors have fine metalwork screens over the windows, and the doorway is surrounded by green, red and gold tiling to match the columns. An extra five bays in the same style were added at each end in c.1955. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
