George Adam, Smith and Ornamental Ironworker, Walker Street, Partick.—
The trade of ornamental ironworker, as prosecuted by Mr. George Adam, may be tardy in growth, but it is assuredly developing into widespread popularity. Mr. Adam was established in 1867 in Partick, in the capacity of smith and ornamental ironworker, and has occupied these present premises for twelve years. They consist of a building of two flats, the ground flat being devoted to the forging and the upper flat to the fitting and finishing of the work. Everything is produced here in the shape of fancy and ornamental wrought-iron goods — gates, railings, church-door hinges, vanes, cemetery enclosures, &c., &c., and the designs, as a rule, are very artistic. Mr. Adam has a very large connection in these articles, and has done very extensive work all over the country, with private gentlemen’s houses, university gates and railings, churches, cemeteries, &c., and has contracts with architects in Glasgow, Edinburgh, and all the principal towns in Scotland. He is an exhibitor at the Glasgow International Exhibition, where some very fine specimens of his workmanship are to be seen.
Mr. Adam has proved himself to be a man of first-rate abilities, and the conspicuous success he has achieved is well merited.
