First Glasgow Directory 1787 - Lists

FIRST GLASGOW DIRECTORY 1787 Lists

The Editor of this Directory intended it at first only as an Alphabetical
List of the Subscribers of the Tontine Coffee-room, but was prevailed upon
to make it of more general use, by collecting the names of as many of the
Merchants, Manufacturers, &c. &c. as the time would possibly allow, with a
List of such of the Firms in Glasgow as conveniently could be got.

PLEASE NOTE!!
The information provided below is typed just as it appears to be in the
book. I have had email from visitors who were wondering if I realized the
small f's should be small s's. Please be aware that some of the small s's
looked like small f's. I for one was not yet aware that in the 18th and
early 19th centuries the small s's looked alot like the small f's. It has
been pointed out to me that the crossbar does not go completely through the
letter. The print in this old book was very tiny to start with so I didn't
even notice that about the crossbar. Another person let me know that in some
of her old documents where there are double small s's that it is just the
first small s that looks like the small f. Keep that in mind when looking at
old documents. I'm going to leave this Directory just as it is. It isn't
that hard to follow once one knows what I just said here.
