The treatment and supply of natural gas was once a major industry in Scotland, with every town having its own gasworks. A collection of material from Scottish Gas includes equipment from large and small works and includes two steam engines.
The collection includes hand tools from a variety of trades including construction, roofing, plumbing and electrics.
Star objects include a Fowler steam roller which is the star of event days at Summerlee Museum, a pavement roller and drawing tools used in the design of Cumbernauld New Town and post-war estates elsewhere.
