George C. Robertson
George C. Robertson, Wright, Trunk, Packing Box, and Tin Case maker, 170, Buchanan Street.—
A conspicuous house in the particular line of industry represented is that conducted by Mr. George C. Robertson, which was originally founded by him twelve years ago in West Nile Street. About two years since Mr. Robertson built his present premises specially for the business.
There is a large, well-appointed workshop and yard, together with ample storage accommodation. The stock held, which is very large, is composed entirely of trunks, packing boxes, and tin cases in great variety, all of which are finished in a superior manner. The trade extends all over the United Kingdom. In England especially a large trade is done with the best Manchester houses.
Mr. Robertson is a thoroughly practical manufacturer, having been for over seventeen years foreman in the same line prior to starting in business for himself. All his customers accord him the highest respect and esteem for the thorough principles upon which he conducts his business.
