Inscription. Established in 1882, this plant was one of the largest of its kind in the world. It produced a wide variety of horseshoes using the unique patented process of George Bryden. Their high quality led to international demand and distribution. Thousands of Bryden shoes were supplied to the British War Dept., 1899-1910, during and after the Boer War. Bryden became Phoenix Manufacturing Co. in 1928 and converted production to commercial forging.
