Friday photo - Penmans

4:24 PM

For today's photo I couldn't resist this random but wonderful image of a Penman's boiler being loaded/unloaded? onto a boat.


The records of Penman & Co. Ltd are held by Glasgow City Archives.  At the Ballast Trust we have a collection of job files that we will be processing and adding to the existing collection TD244

From the SCAN entry for Penman & Co.Ltd:
The Glasgow firm of Penman & Co, boilermakers, Caledonian Iron Works, was established around 1870 and by 1900 occupied a three-acre site at its Caledonian Iron Works in Strathclyde Street, Bridgeton (built 1889). The firm was incorporated in 1907 and from 1920 was owned by Babcock & Wilcox. It specialised in land boilers, which were exported worldwide.
