Etna Buildings Falkirk Scotland
« on: Sunday 29 April 12 21:28 BST (UK) »
Does anyone have any photos or general info on this building, built for the workers at the Etna Foundry, or info on the lives of the people living there. The building no longer exists nor does the foundry. My greatgrandparents lived there in 1891 but were no longer there in the 1901 census.
I've already enquired at Callendar House Archives in Falkirk but they don't have much info.
