Just came across this old thread (obviously revived) & found it very interesting!

Great pic Joseph J.

From 'The text relates to the photo', I recognised the name Merry Street where my 2hd cousin (2 removes) was born 1893 (McKinnon family)  ;)

Now gives me an idea of the area etc.

Thanks,

Annie

Hello to everyone who has posted here. I am not a member of the King family but their association with the Scottish brick manufacturing industry of old interests me. I run the website www.scottishbrickhistory.co.uk and I have a page dedicated to the Kings

https://www.scottishbrickhistory.co.uk/the-kings-brick-makers-of-auchinlea-bellside-and-greenhill/

If anyone has any further info on the brick manufacturing aspect then I would love to hear from them. I am also available on brickmarks@gmail.com

Does anyone have any relevant photos?

very best regards

Mark
