furrier duke streetHi all I am researching my family tree I was wondering if anyone had photos or any information on my great great grandfathers business what follows is everything I know about it.
George William Hendrie owned the business and ran it along with his 2 brothers William and Matthew (my great great grandfather) it was advertised in the Glasgow trade directory. The firm acquired a great prestige within the trade and the patronage of various VIP s of the day further denoted its growing sucsess. They also made rugs for Alexander's coaches.
