Tour Scotland Video Of Old Photographs Dalmuir
Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Dalmuir, an area on the western side of Clydebank, in West Dunbartonshire, Scotland. Before being annexed to the growing shipbuilding town of Clydebank, early Dalmuir was a town in its own right and host to Richard Collins paper mill, which opened in 1747 on the banks of the Duntocher Burn. The William Beardmore and Company shipbuilding and engineering works attracted a large population to settle in the area. It was active from 1886 to the mid 1930s and at its peak employed about 40,000 people. Its most well known area these days is Dalmuir Park. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
