Scope and Content Gorbals Grain Mills, Nos 87-97 Surrey Street, Glasgow This business was established in about 1884 by Andrew Motherwell, grain merchant. The main building surviving in 1964 was built in two sections, in 1890 and in 1895-6, both designed by John Hamilton, architect, who also designed a block of stables at the rear, built in 1891. This shows one of the two principal doorways in the building, which made effective use of red and white brick, including specially moulded bricks. This doorway is in a style favoured by architects Bruce & Hay, who built many industrial buildings in Glasgow from the 1880s. This firm processed grain both for human and animal consumption. They had a large retail grain store round the corner from the mills selling all sorts of grain products, not all processed in the mills. The mills were demolished in 1970 as part of the comprehensive redevelopment of the Gorbals area in Glasgow. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
