    Default Trade directory Glasgow HELP PLEASE

    Hi everyone

    I am trying to find out if anyone can search a trade directory for Glasgow (early to mid 1800s) for a gentleman with the surname DAVIDSON who is listed as a plasterer.

    Thank you

    Default glasgow trade directory

    My mother was apprenticed as a french polisher to a large jewish family firm in Glasgow from approximately 1942. I think the name of the company from memory was Gardiner's. Can anyone confirm this for me please? She started approx 14 years and was considered qualified I think about 6 years later. I remember she told me that for the first two years she wasn't allowed to touch any wood - her job simply was to watch the other polishers and observe and brush the shavings up.

    Her mother was also a french polisher - but a different sort - but I have no idea what was meant by that.

    Cheers

    If you don't get the info you want, I know that there's at least one Glasgow Directory for sale on Parish Chest.

    Hi
    The Pigots Directory for Glasgow 1825/26 is on Ancestry.

    This is probably yours;

    Walter Paterson, 21 Norfolk St, Laurieston. Plasterer.

    I have saved a copy if he is yours let me know.

    Default Glasgow plasterer DAVIDSON

    Hi Peter

    Thank you for your response, but I am looking for a James Davidson plasterer of Glasgow please, not a Walter Paterson.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you
