Scope and Content Pullars' Dyeworks, Kinnoull Street, Perth, Perthshire Pullars of Perth were the most celebrated and largest dyers in Scotland for much of the 19th and early 20th century. The Kinnoull Street works was built up from 1865, and covered a large area of central Perth. This view shows the Kinnoull Street frontage of the building, with the base of the boiler-house chimney. Note the arched cart entries, with cast iron lintels. One has been converted into a shop front. The works gradually ran down from the 1960s, as the dyeing of clothes and furnishing fabrics fell out of fashion, as did mechanical carpet-beating, and centralised dry-cleaning. The works closed in the 1980s and are being redeveloped. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
