Scope and Content Templeton's Carpet Factory, No 62 Templeton Street, Glasgow This shows part of the Templeton Street frontage of the works. This block was added in 1868-9, and seems to have been the first large addition to the original mill, apart from single-storeyed weaving sheds to the rear of this building. The building to the right was the office block of 1927. Templetons was the largest firm of carpet makers in Scotland, but succumbed to competition in the 1970s. Most of the buildings (but not the 1868-9 range, which was demolished) were converted to the Templeton Business Centre by the Scottish Development Agency in 1980-5. This factory was founded in 1857 by James Templeton & Son, initially in a former cotton spinning mill of about 1823. At first it made Templeton & Quiglay's patent chenille axminster carpets, but from the late 1880s it also made spool axminster carpets, an American invention. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
