Gartnavel Brickworks, Gartnavel, Glasgow

R. & J. Moyes, 248 West George Street, Glasgow.

1869 – 1883 – William Shepherd Moyes (1879–1962) was the son and grandson of house factors and land agents, so by training as an architect he was continuing the family tradition of property development. From c. 1869 until 1883, his father, James (c. 1845–1893), and grandfather Robert Moyes (c. 1820–1883) traded as R. & J. Moyes, 248 West George Street, Glasgow. They also acted as ‘quarrymasters and brickmakers’, latterly extracting stone at Gartnavel, on the city’s western edge.
