Broughton Industries


Thank you to Alex Dow, Fife Scotland for his memories of Duncan's Chocolates in Edinburgh.

"McDonald Road Church held an exhibition of the various industries etc in the parish, in 1949. 

Duncan's, Brown Brothers etc including many of those mentioned in Beaverbank, participated.  My late uncle, Willie Dow, was Engineer at Liddell's Laundry for many years.

Brown Brothers exhibited models of the catapult launcher for Walrus amphibian aircraft and of servo-assisted ship's steering gear. The company later developed the steam catapult for aircraft carriers."
