Plant taken away to England.
The hammers are now silent in the much talked of established known as the Shandon Experimental Station and with the exception of a few officers and watchmen and one or two workmen the staff has cleared off.
All the machinery has been dismantled and the bulk of it taken to England. What the Disposals Board will do with the elaborate and costly fittings at Shandon remains to be seen. Meantime Helensburgh shopkeepers as well as the workmen are the only persons who will regret the closing down of the establishment.
