Chapham Inveresk

The Company

Chapman Inveresk works in McDonald Road produced envelopes until the works closed  on December 18, 1991.

At the time of my visit on October 28, 1991.  Some of the machinery had already been moved to new premises in Lanarkshire.

Lighting

The lighting conditions were not ideal for colour photography here.  There was a mix of lighting, predominantly fluorescent that gave a deep green cast in some areas.  Other areas were quite dark as the lighting appeared to have stopped working.
