'Post Office Glasgow directory' for 1901-1902

Page showing illustrated adverts

The 'Post Office Glasgow directory' for 1901-1902 includes this beautiful Art Nouveau advert for Smith & Rait, 'Goldsmiths by special Royal Warrant'.

Even without any coloration, this piece of art by D Maxwell Tyre is able to create an eye-catching, magical atmosphere.

The advert at the bottom is a good example of 19th-century companies running several unrelated businesses at the same time.

In this case Kelso & Company from Glasgow worked as opticians, electricians, and model makers.
