J. Brown & Co.

J. Brown & Co., Seedsmen, Florists, and Fruiterers, 81 Argyle Street.—

    This business, which has been recently removed to its present more central and convenient premises, was established over half a century ago in Glassford Street, by the late John Brown, and is now carried on by his widow, who removed to the present premises in 1879. The establishment consists of a fine double shop and saloon, and through the influencial old connection brought from Glassford Street, and that which has been created by the pleasant manners of Mrs. Brown and her attendants, the business is one of the most flourishing in the trade. A great portion of Mrs. Brown’s trade is supplying flowers and fruit to private families, hotels, &c., amongst whom she is greatly respected.
