Dundee Central Library's Lamb Collection [Box 189(1)] contains a catalogue of the Dundee Exhibition of Industry which ran from December 1887 until January 1888, in which James B. Lawson, the wines and spirits merchant, took a full-page advertisement.
He is listed as the agent for John Begg's Royal Lochnagar distillery at Balmoral, Doran & Co., whiskey manufacturers of Belfast, and David Nicolson's Palace Brewery in Edinburgh.
Alexander Wilson who took this photograph, was a supervisor in a Dundee jute mill for over 20 years. He bequeathed much of his collection and £50, to cover the costs involved, to the Free Library Committee of Dundee in 1923.
