Statement of Interest

The only building known to have been constructed by Thompson and Gall, active 1866-8 at Tay Foundry. W B Thompson took up shipbuilding and established the Caledon Shipyard (later Robb Caledon) in 1874. The warehouse was built for J and W Smith, waste merchants, later becoming the iron warehouse of George Stephen and Sons, Castle Street. The

only fully fireproof warehouse in the area. Part of Smeaton's circa 1790 dry or graving dock is reputed to lie in the cellars of one of the warehouses in Exchange Street.
