Old Photograph Alva Glen Scotland
Old photograph of Alva Glen located above the village of Alva, Clackmannanshire, Scotland. During the Industrial Revolution, Alva developed as a textile manufacturing centre, with the, originally water powered, woollen mills using water from the Glen, to provide employment for locals and migrant workers to the area. The Dalmore Works was built in 1874 for Wilson Brothers who produced textile products including tweed, woollen novelty fabrics and mohair and woollen rugs. The works were operated by Wilsons until 1964.
