Tait's Directory p69

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 69 includes surnames from Wright to Watson.

Archibald Wright, better known as "Bauldy" Wright, was an old Highlander who kept a small shop in the Trongate, where he sold drugs and garden seeds. He was also the proprietor and sole inventor of "Wright's Powders," the virtues of which have been described in the following fashion: "If they did nae harm, they could do nae guid!"
