John Ewing

John Ewing, Grain, Hay, and Seed Merchant, 188 and 142, Cambridge Street.

    This is one of the oldest established businesses in Glasgow. Founded as long ago as 1835 by Mr. John Ewing, senr., it has been under the energetic control of its present proprietor since 1850.

    The premises occupied are centrally situated, and fitted with every requisite that can facilitate the operations of the business. They comprise a double-fronted shop with large windows, which are splendidly stocked with grain and farming implements. The firm also occupy premises in the adjoining court, and these contain a large stock of hay and seeds of every description for gardens, farms, &c.

    The business of the firm is conducted in a manner worthy of the high reputation and popularity it has enjoyed for over half a century. All goods supplied from this establishment can be relied on for quality, and orders are executed in the promptest manner. The connection enjoyed by this firm is of the most valuable and widespread character, and extends to all parts of Glasgow and neighbourhood. Mr. John Ewing, the proprietor, is a gentleman well known for his business ability and experience in all the details of his trade, and his large and increasing circle of patronage is proof of the manner in which he strives to maintain the old traditions of his house.
