A Victorian Factory – The Final Chapter
Work by Jim Mackintosh
Preview Saturday 2 April, 7pm
After a working life of 120 years the end is in sight for this Victorian Factory in Falkland, Fife as the demolition teams prepare to move in. Originally built to manufacture Linen it later produced Linoleum before being taken over by Smith Anderson to produce paper bags for the food industry.
Production came to an end in 2013 as the company moved to new premises and the site was earmarked for redevelopment.
Edinburgh Photographer Jim Mackintosh was granted unrestricted access to the factory during the final months of production and has created a documentary capturing the story of the people and buildings.
As working lives and industry change this is an important record of Scotland’s social and industrial heritage. It is a celebration of the workers, past and present.
