Ganniste Dougall

Found on the Bonnyside Brickworks Site, Bonnybridge.

This brick is broken and should read ‘Gannister’ but the ‘G’ is broken off however the final ‘R’ seems never to have been stamped.

(Note – SBH – So is it Gannister or Ganister!)

Below – A similar stamp on a broken brick found at the old Ravenscraig Steelworks, Motherwell. Note there is more of a linear division between the two lines of text on this example.
