The old railway line which ran under Copland Road towards Ibrox Station used by thousands of football fans attending a match at Ibrox Stadium until its closure in 1967, apparently there are plans to re-open it. In the attached photo I have added image SAW009727 to indicate the route of the trains as they approached Ibrox Station (out of frame).

Hammer Shaft Factory, No 17 Fairley Street, Glasgow This works was founded in 1892 by Robert Burley & Sons, makers of hammer shafts and tool handles. It was extended in 1901 for the same firm, who were timber importers and merchants, as well as manufacturers. This shows the street frontage of the works from the north-east. The design suggests that the 1892 factory was the symmetrical block at the far end (of attached photos), and that the extension of 1901 is the near-symmetrical range at this end (photos). The building was still in use for its original purpose in 1968. Hand tools, including hammers of a wide range of sizes, and picks shovels and spades were used in enormous numbers before power tools and earth-moving machinery were readily available. The best hammer shafts were made, as here, from hickory wood, imported from America.

24 Fairley Street, Engine and Boiler Works. Engine and Boiler Works, No 24 Fairley Street, Glasgow This works was built in 1901 for James Anderson, to designs by D W Sturrock, architect. It seems likely that this was a move for Anderson's firm from their Bishop Street Engine Works. The works had a short life as such, for in 1908 it was converted into a bakery for Montgomerie & Co, to designs by Thomas Young, engineer. This shows the Fairley Street frontage of the building from the south-west. The building appears little changed from when it was an engineering and boiler works. In 1968 the bakery was still in operation, in the ownership of Montgomerie's Bread Co Ltd, and was billed as 'The Home of the Wonderloaf'. Its present use is not known.

15 Fairley Street, Ibrox Ironworks. Ibrox Iron Works, No 15 Fairley Street, Glasgow This little works was built in 1891, and extended in 1904 for J M Adam & Co, pneumatic engineer, at a time when compressed air was being used increasingly as a means of transmitting power. Air-operated drills and riveting machines were already in use by 1900. This shows the street frontage of the works from the north-east. It seems possible that the 1904 extensions consisted of adding a storey to the central bay. By 1968 the building was being occupied by W B Russell, haulage contractors. Pneumatic tools were developed most actively in the United States of America, where the severe winters made the use of water-hydraulic power transmission inadvisable. The use of mass production techniques made sophisticated tools relatively cheap.
