View of part of the Round Foundry buildings showing a notice giving historical details about these former engineering works. This is said to be the site of the Rotunda, a four-storey round building erected in 1802 by the firm Fenton, Murray and Wood as a fitting-up shop for components produced in the Round Foundry, to which it gave its name. The Rotunda was destroyed by fire in 1875 and the firm of Smith, Beacock and Tannett, machine tool manufacturers, owners of the foundry at the time, constructed this present building on the site.
