Brown Brothers Decorators

brownBrown Brothers were painters and decorators, located at 222 Glasgow Road pre 2nd world war. This advert is extracted from a Blantyre Cookery book (in our possession) and features a full page advert for the decorating duo.

The book is dated 1936 and the advert reads “Nothing is too much trouble” – and whether you are giving the trouble, or our workmen are taking it, the results are equally happy. Our work may cost a little more than the cheapest, but long after the price is forgotten, the work remains. May we quote for your next job, our materials and workmen are first class – nothing is to much trouble”. I just love the telephone number, Blantyre 25. Showing just how rare and simplistic the telephone was back then.

If anybody knows anything else about these Browns, please get it touch with us.
