Scope and Content Cornton Foundry, Cornton Road, Bridge of Allan, Stirling This shows a mould being filled with molten iron poured from a ladle suspended from an overhead crane. The man on the left of the ladle is steadying it while the other man tilts it. The man standing on the left is Mr Davie, owner and manager of the firm. In 1971 this foundry was still owned by a Mr Davie, who ran it with two employees, who moulded for a fortnight, then poured all the moulds at once. Most of the output was sold to Perth County Council and to Stirling Town Council. The foundry has since closed and been demolished. This foundry was built in 1940-4 by James Davie & Sons, iron founders and engineers, who had a foundry in the centre of Stirling where they made architectural castings and agricultural implements. The new foundry was built to make castings for the war effort. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
