J. McDowall & Co.

J. McDowall & Co., Seed Merchants, Horse and Agricultural Condiment Merchants, as supplied to the Royal Farms, 4, York Street.—

    The business carried on by Messrs. J. McDowall & Co. is rather comprehensive. The firm are widely known as seed merchants, but there are also many important specialities that are dealt in. The firm is perhaps most widely known in connection with the manufacture of condiments for horses and cattle as supplied to the royal farms.  McDowall’s “Royal” Horse Condiment is an excellent restorative, and its effect in improving the condition of animals to whom it is administered is really marvellous. The similar effect is observed by the use of the cattle condiment, by means of which young stock is very rapidly developed.

    In addition to the large business done in this direction the firm act as agents for the celebrated Tower Tea Company, who supply the public with really high-class blends of tea at exceptionally reasonable prices. They occupy spacious warehouses, &c., at 4, York Street, and command a very extensive and increasing trade throughout Scotland generally.
