Pitmuxton Siding

The shot shows the approximate location of what was called Pitmuxton Siding; this lies between what is now Gairn Terrace to the north and Allanvale to the south. The location is shown on a 1883 Post Office Directory map of Aberdeen. It had been built to serve the Ruthrieston Brickworks (ca.1871-1883) north of the railway on the estate then called Pitmuxton. This name has almost totally disappeared from the city since Pitmuxton House was renamed Pitstruan House around 1850.
