This establishment, which is situated beside the Tron steeple, was founded in 1844 by William Spence, and was acquired by the present proprietor in 1886. The premises comprise a large shop with flat above, having a gallery.
The valuable stock exhibited includes all kinds of joiners’ and cabinetmakers’ tools and ironmongery of every description. The house is much frequented by joiners and other tradesmen in town and country.
Mr. McFarlane’s original establishment was situated at 11, Trongate, Cross. He is well known in the trade, and having the benefit of long experience and the old-established connection of forty years which Mr. Spence formed, he continues to maintain and extend the reputation of his fine warehouse, and enjoys the confidence and respect of a large circle of customers.
