Scope and Content Sir William Arrol's Works (Dalmarnock Iron Works), Dunn Street, Glasgow This works was founded in about 1868 by William Arrol to make structural ironwork for bridges, piers and related purposes. The firm became the leader in Britain in its field, and diversified into making hydraulic machinery, and into building steel-framed factory buildings. This shows part of the Dunn Street frontage of the works from the south-west. Behind the narrow brick-clad frontage is a large range of steel-framed workshops, probably built to the company's own designs, perhaps in 1911, when a large addition was made. The structural engineering firm of Sir William Arrol & Co was founded in Dunn Street in about 1868, and expanded to cover almost the whole of a large block. Demand for the company's products declined in the later 20th century, and the works was closed and demolished in the 1980s. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
