Scope and Content Carsehead Brick Works, Beith Road, Dalry, North Ayrshire This brick works was constructed from 1907, probably by the Eglinton Iron Co, for it was on the site of that company's Blair iron-smelting works, which had been demolished in the 1870s. It was the first of the four Dalry brick works which made common bricks out of colliery waste. This shows the works from the north-west, taken from a train. It shows the two Hoffman continuous kilns, with their associated chimneys. The works was in full operation when this photograph was taken. Common bricks were extensively used in housebuilding from the early 20th century until the 1970s, and many brickworks like Carsehead were constructed. Very few now remain. Carsehead closed in 1977, and has been demolished. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
