NOTES: This is one of the images taken for 'Manplan 3: Town Workshop' in Architectural Review, vol. 146, 1969 Nov. In the early 1950s Robert Wilson & Sons established their food canning business in the stable block, designed by Robert Adam, of Eglinton Castle, which became part of the area of Irvine New Town, designated in 1965. These premises were insufficient to accomodate the expanding butchery department so an 'Air House', devised by the Gourock Ropework Company, was erected at the rear of the stables in 1969.
