R. Dale & Smith

R. Dale & Smith, Glaziers, Glass Stainers, and Embossers, 161, Bothwell Street (corner of Douglas Street).

    An old and worthy house in the glass staining, glazing, and embossing trade is that of Messrs. Dale & Smith, which was established by the present firm in the same street over thirteen years ago, the premises now occupied having been erected by the partners for their own use in 1882. The ground floor of 161, Bothwell Street is utilised as a warehouse and showroom, and in the basement are the well-appointed workshops.

    The specialities in which the house has made its reputation are plain glazing for church windows and domestic purposes, as well as the more artistic work of embossing on glass for general ornamentation. Glazing of all kinds is also undertaken and executed in the best style of workmanship All the workmen employed appear to be picked tradesmen, the firm members carefully superintending all work executed, be it for the church or hall, drawing-room or kitchen.

    Their trade is of the highest class, and principally confined to Glasgow and neighbourhood. The firm members are Mr. Robert Dale and Mr. Henry Smith, both of whom are gentlemen of great practical experience in all branches of the trade, and highly respected by all their trade colleagues and patrons in Glasgow and its environs.
