As 'clippedwings' quite rightly pointed out on 7th December, these trucks are not AEC Matadors but Fordson Thames 7V tipper trucks. I couldn't remove or edit my initial post so have put this in to clarify. Thanks.

I think that they are Ford 7V's. Compare the position of the headlights, the slope of the radiator, the cab tapers in plan view and the one piece windscreen.

Parkhead Forge, Duke Street, Glasgow This works was founded in about 1837 by Reoch Bros & Co to make forgings from scrap iron. It was subsequently greatly extended by Rigby & Beardmore and William Beardmore & Co Ltd. During both World Wars it was an important munitions works. This shows a large machine shop built in 1905 and extended in 1914 to make artillery for use on the Western Front during World War I. The brick cladding covered a steel frame. The main part of the works was at the far end of this range. Under William Beardmore, Parkhead Forge became the nucleus of a vast industrial empire, with a workforce of over 100,000 at its peak. By the 1960s Parkhead was all that was left, making alloy steel, heavy forgings and rolling-mill rolls. The works closed in the 1980s and has almost all been demolished accept this one building (see pic) which today trades in spare car tyres. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.

This shows part of the forge on the north side of East Wellington Street, from the south-east. This is 'F' machine shop, probably built in the 1890s, and a heavy machine shop used when built to machine gun barrels and other large steel forgings and castings. Beardmores became the largest munitions works in Scotland during both World Wars. After World War II the firm made, among other products, forged boiler-drums and work rolls for steel strip mills. The works closed in the 1980s, and most of the site is now a retail park, known as The Forge. This very large complex had its origins in a forge established in about 1837 by Reoch Brothers & Co to make forgings from scrap malleable iron. It was subsequently enormously enlarged by a series of partnerships, and under Sir William Beardmore became a major munitions works from the 1890s. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
