James Reid

A portrait of James Reid of Auchterarder and the Hydepark Locomotive Works by Sir George Reid (1841-1913).

In 1876 James Reid became sole partner in Europe's largest locomotive manufacturing company, Neilson, Reid & Co of the Hydepark Locomotive Works in Springburn. He also collected art and built up a small but impressive collection of works, some of which are now in the collections of Glasgow Museums.
