     An aerial view from the north-west of the vast iron and steel works of William Beardmore & Co at Parkhead Forge, 1950. Parkhead Forge was established by Reoch Brothers & Co c 1837 and acquired by Robert Napier in 1841 to make forgings and iron plates for his shipyard. William Beardmore became a partner in the business in the 1860s and was joined by his brother and son, William Jr, who became sole partner and then founded William Beardmore & Co in 1886. By 1896 the works covered an area of 25 acres and was the largest steelworks in Scotland, specialising in the manufacture of armaments and armour plate for warships. Parkhead Forge was a major employer in the East End, the number of workers reaching a peak of over 20,000 during the First World War. There was a slump during the 1920s and 1930s, a revival during the Second World War and then more hard times as the world-wide demand for warships and armaments declined. The Parkhead Forge finally closed in 1976. The Forge shopping centre was later built on the site, opening in 1988 and subsequently joined by a retail park and a market hall

     A tank built by William Beardmore & Co during the First World War. Beardmore had become a major warship builder and naval armaments manufacturer before the war, and the range of weapons and munitions produced at the firm's vast Parkhead Forge expanded rapidly after 1914. Among other things, the company built fifty tanks. The pedrail shoes (the treads) for the tanks were manufactured at Parkhead and the rest of the work was completed at the firm's Dalmuir works.

     Roundabout here seems to be Parkhead Jnrs. original ground.The club was founded in 1880 and was sometimes referred to as Parkhead Football Club. Their first ground was at the Sheddens where Old Shettleston Road and Shettleston Road meet. From there they moved to Powfoot Street/Beattock Street and their ground was known as Helenslea Park, although they were known to have played some games at Helenvale Park. They were five times winners of the Scottish Junior Cup in 1899, 1903, 1915, 1920 and 1924 as well as being runner-up on four other occasions. They were at one time the oldest team in the Scottish Junior League. Their third and final ground was once again named Helenslea Park and was located at Cuthelton Street. The club became defunct in 1964.
