Livingston, Ewing & Co.

Livingston, Ewing & Co., Purchasers, Agents, Packers, Calendrers, Sot Pressers, &c., 66 to 70, Miller Street.—

    One of the oldest and most important houses in its line in Glasgow is that of Messrs. Livingston, Ewing & Co. This well-known and representative concern was founded upwards of a century ago in Virginia Street, by Mr .William Livingston. Subsequently, the firm became known as Livingston, Ewing & Co., and the sole principal of the concern now is Mr. William Ewing. About five years ago the business was transferred to its present headquarters in Miller Street, where the premises occupied comprise four very large and commodious flats, and regular employment is here given to about two hundred and fifty hands. Messrs. Livingston, Ewing & Co. are widely and favourably known throughout the trade as purchasers’ agents, packers, calenderers, hot pressers, silk finishers, hemmers, shrinkers, &c. Their special undertaking consists in the buying of goods in a rough state for purchasers, both at home and abroad, finishing the same in various ways, and packing and shipping them to all parts of the world.

    The business is under the direct personal supervision and control of Mr. William Ewing, a gentleman of extended and valuable experience in this important branch of business, and his energetic and judicious policy of administration is instrumental in continuously fortifying his house in the eminent position it has so long and so worthily maintained.
