|Bio Notes: ||George McCulloch Brand was born at 44 Shamrock Street, Glasgow on 18 January 1863, the son of William Brand, carver and gilder (and later art critic) and his wife Agnes McCulloch. His professional training is not yet known but in the 1891 census he was described as a measurer, while his experiments with ferro-concrete suggest that he may have had some engineering experience. |
Late in 1891 or early in 1892 he formed a partnership with Samuel Beglan (or Beglain) Lithgow, the practice being based at 131 West Regent Street. Lithgow had been born at 44 Alexander Street, Airdrie on 17 September 1858, the son of Thomas Lithgow, lath splitter and his wife Janet Beglan or Beglain. The 1891 census indicates that his original profession was that of measurer. Around 1888 he had married Annie McAra Spence, also from Airdrie; two children, Margaret and Annie, are recorded in the 1891 census.
The partnership of Brand & Lithgow was dissolved in or about 1915, probably because of lack of business or separate wartime commitments.
