Brass Foundry

Brass Foundry

This brass foundry, also known as a 'Tub Shop', was built in Shaw Street in Walsall in 1869. It has space for 2 casters to work, with a barrelling and polishing room next door. Molten brass was poured by hand from a crucible into moulds; an old crucible can be seen on the right, upturned and converted for use as a stove.
