Historic Ramsay building gets modern treatment

Postby newsposter » Wed Mar 21, 2007 2:27 pm

A 1905 building in the Alyth rail yards in Ramsay has been renovated and some modern extensions added. Now billed as "LocalMotive Crossing," it was originally Royal Crown Soaps Ltd and later Standard Soap Company. Category C on the heritage inventory.

If someone has photos of the building (now completed), please let us know and we'll put them up...
