In reviewing the business interests of Glasgow there are many houses which, by reason of their lengthy and honourable career, and the extended and influential connection they enjoy, deserve especially prominent mention. Among such is the establishment conducted by Messrs. W. M. Stuart and W. J. Brown, the individual members of the firm under consideration. For some time past this house has stood in the foremost rank of wholesale stationers, and blank book manufacturers, and the high personal standing of its proprietors, as well as the superior quality of its goods, have secured for it a prominence accorded to but few contemporary concerns.
In the execution of every description of printing, lithographing, engraving, and die-cutting the firm has acquired a wide reputation, while as general stationers the house also occupies a representative position. The specialities of production in this latter line consist of tracing papers, carbonised and oiled royals, as also the mounting of maps and plans. In the general stock will be found stationery supplies of every kind, artistsí, colourmenís, and engineers' drawing materials, stencil plates, mathematical instruments, &c., &c.
Messrs. Stuart & Brown occupy very commodious premises at No. 160, Buchanan Street, completely fitted up for the efficient conduct of the business, employ only thoroughly competent assistants, and give close personal attention to every detail, are prepared to guarantee in every respect the quality of their goods and work. Mr. Stuart was a member of the town council for three years, representing one of the largest wards in the city of Glasgow. Both members of the firm are noted for their enterprise and activity, and constitute a partnership representing worth and ability of the highest order.
