A cheatily simple post. A map. Of George Younger's Candleriggs Brewery in Alloa.

It's taken from "A Short History of George Younger & Son Limited, Alloa (1762 - 1925)" published in 1925. My copy is a fairly cheapo reprint from the 1980's, typewritten, with a pretty blurry reproduction of the brewery map. I've redone the years, added the colours and generally touched up the image. Some of the years are a guess because they were so blurred in the original.

The map shows the slow, steady, but very piecemeal expansion of the brewery. Even well-known brewers like George Younger operated on a modest scale.

We'll be learning more about exactly what scale that was soon. Promise. There'll be another map, too. No, two. Two maps.Products of the communication age, both.https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/5445569787371915337-255771612555216767?l=barclayperkins.blogspot.com
