The Dumbarton Road, City, has an active worker in the personage of Mr. George Dott, whose experience and operations in household and general stationery is very effectively felt, as, in addition to this shop at No. 28, he has one at the opposite end, No. 382, just at Overnewton, the dividing point of the Glasgow and Partick divisions of the Dumbarton Road. No. 28, however, is his headquarters. Mr. Dott was established here in 1879. He has had to enlarge his premises since he entered them. He keeps a very large stock here in miscellaneous stationery goods, in which he does a good family and wholesale trade ; in the latter way he has a large connection for twines.
He acts as the local receiver for Cranstonhill Branch of the General Post Office, and is local agent for the Sun Fire and Life Insurance Company. In the wholesale stationery Mr. Dott has good working facilities, and undertakes a wide range of mercantile and manufacturing work — engraving, lithographing, printing, account-book making, and general letterpress bookbinding. His retail trade is also of a firmly established nature in both shops, and he supplements it very considerably in the sale of newspapers, periodicals, magazines, &c., &c. He keeps an efficient staff of assistant, and attends in person to the general routine of the work.
