Camlachie Brick Works, Porter Street, Glasgow

02/07/1855 – Glasgow Herald – Notice – I pay John Porter, or any of my workmen their wages daily or hourly if required. Archibald Binnie, Camlachie Brick Work.

Below – 1857 – Newlands Brickfields and 3 other brickfields including a claymill. These are situated off Porter Street. (Note – SBH – There are 4 brickfields at this location and I think they may be the Newlands Brickfield as shown on the map and at least one of the other Brickfields was possibly that belonging to the Camlachie Brickworks which are also stated as being on Porter Street or to the South of the Shotts Road? I think William Guild was the proprietor and Archibald Binnie was a one time tennant. It is is rather confusing though!)
