When I visited George Christie's, in 1991,
they had a
large yard of building supplies, surrounded on three sides by metal
workshops and storage. There was a small workforce (2 on the
day of my visit) cutting and assembling metal parts for rooves.
The premises had been used previously
by Cowans as a transport yard and stables. The stables were on
the upper floor. The red brickwork on the wall in this picture
marks the position of one of the ramps to the stables.
