David Richmond

David Richmond, Agent, 78, West Regent Street.—

    Mr. David Richmond has been established in business since 1884 at his present address. He is sole agent in Glasgow for the “Lion Foundry Company”, Kirkintilloch, and he is, likewise, the sole principal of the “Clydesdale Enamelling Company”. The Lion Foundry Company, through Mr. Richmond, supplied all the rain water castings for the Glasgow Exhibition.

    The Clydesdale Enamelling Company are enamellers of the anti-corrosive oxidized enamel, which can be applied to copper, zinc, slate, wood, iron, and glass. Mr. Richmond has a most important trade in this branch also, his connection being widespread and also very substantial. The cost of enamelling is trifling when compared with the saving effected by its preserving qualities.

    The premises in West Regent Street comprise an office and store, and the latter is literally crammed with a large and varied stock of cast-iron fittings in connection with the plumbing trade. The enamelling works are situated at 142, North Street. Mr. Richmond is highly popular in business circles, and enjoys a superior commercial reputation.
