McManus Corporate Subscribers

As might be expected in a leading textile centre like Dundee – ‘Juteopolis’ – linen and jute merchants and manufacturers dominate the subscription list; among them Baxter Brothers and the Baxter family loom large. But alongside big industry there are also many smaller lessor known firms, equally generous for their size.
