The inner remains of Findlay’s- Photo from the Delmer Dunlop Collection at Archives Lanark
This is part of the Findlay Memorial Cairn, located on the site of the first foundry on High Street. It gets missed, tucked away on the north side of High Street in a tiny little park with a shuffleboard court! All that remains is an empty field and a cairn of a once great company.
Mike Doyle–Thank you, Linda, for this. My father Meyer Francis Doyle (b: 1910), worked in the Findlay plant as a pattern-maker prior to 1939, when he was hired by the Canadian Vickers Company in Montreal, as his trade, learned at Findlays, was integral to the manufacture of the PBY ‘Flying Boat’ which Vickers was building for the war effort.
This plaque and photos will now be part of my family history.
