McDowall, Steven and Company

McDowall, Steven & Co were a firm of Glasgow based iron founders, founded by John McDowall, of the Eagle Foundry, Port Dundas, in 1828, best known for their decorative cast iron fountains, band stands, balconies, garden seats and post boxes. The company's roots extend back to the early 19th century but became known as McDowall, Steven & Co in 1862.

In 1835 the firm is listed as McDowall & Robertson, Milton Foundry, Port Dundas (with James Kennedy the stationer as their agent at 115 Ingram Street), becoming McDowall & Co., 1844-61, at 3 Corn Street, Port Dundas, and then McDowall Steven & Co., 1862-1909, as the Milton Iron Works, at 142 Woodside Road, after Hugh Stevenson became a partner.

After closing in 1909, the firm was resurrected in 1916, at the Laurieston Iron Works, Falkirk, until 1930 now Allied Iron founders Ltd of Falkirk.

They manufactured ornamental cresting’s and pipes for buildings; band stands, seats and railings for the city's parks, and ornamental drinking fountains and lamp standards for its streets and public places, and also exported their castings to towns elsewhere in the UK and the Commonwealth.
