DIXON IRON WORKS
(Oral History Project)
Since its closer in 1958 and later liquidation in 1960 the Dixons Ironworks has been a strong part the historic past of the Gorbals and those who are able to recall its physical dominance within the area have similar memories of this part of the environment that was known to “light up the sky with a glow of red in the night”
Through recollections from individual recordings, anecdotes and past newspaper articles SGHET has been working on archiving information on this unique (and now gone) part of the Gorbals rich historical jig-saw.
The following pages of this site contain that of which we have gathered so far, although the work will be on going via future information received from the contacts page etc.
