Carr and Urwin, manufacturers, Glasgow

Carr and Urwin, manufacturers, Glasgow – (Note – SBH – I have created this page as the 1880 advert below suggests that Car and Urwin manufactured brick making machines in the Glasgow area however I can find no other evidence to suggest this and all references to this company are from the Newcastle, England area. Does anyone know of further references to Carr and Urwin working out of Glasgow?).
