Tait's Directory p42

The first Glasgow directory was published in 1783 by John Tait. This image is taken from a facsimile reprint published in 1871 by Robert Forrester. Page 42 includes surnames from Lindsay to Logan.

Engraver James Lumsden's work included early Glasgow maps and coloured pictures of popular Scottish characters. The family business eventually passed to his son, James Lumsden, who went on to become a successful stationer and a Lord Provost, 1843-1846.
