There were a few ironfounders in Maryhill, but as the Caledonia Foundry in Shuna Street dates from the 1890s, this possibly represents Shaw and MacInnes’ Firhill Road ironfounders, dating from 1866. 

The firm came from, and brought their workers from, Falkirk – by barge along the canal. The works only closed in 2000, and have been demolished.
