John Scouler, Watch Manufacturer and Wholesale Jeweller, &c., 64, Buchanan Street.—
It is most interesting to meet with a firm of such old standing and extensive business connections as that of Mr. John Scouler, of the above address. The business has been established over twenty-two years, and throughout this lengthened period, has occupied the present premises, which comprise large warehouse and show-rooms, together with spacious offices.
Within the limits of the showrooms is exhibited a most comprehensive and valuable stock of gold and silver watches, clocks, timepieces, optical instruments, French bronzes, electro-plate, and many other items of a utilitarian or decorative character, as well as all kinds of British and foreign tools, materials, &e. All these goods are of the highest excellence in material and manufacture. The business is altogether of a wholesale character, extending in its ramifications over the whole of North Britain.
The proprietor is a gentleman possessing the advantage of long mercantile experience. The extent of the trade controlled and the importance of its operations well entitle this firm to rank with the largest and most influential of the great mercantile establishments of the city of Glasgow. Mr Scouler, it may be added, is a justice of the peace for the county of Lanark and ex-provost for the royal borough of Rutherglen.
