Basic Biographical Details

Name: Leadbetter, Fairley & Reid
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: 1909
Ended: 1947(?)
Bio Notes: Leadbetter, Fairley & Reid was the successor of the Edinburgh practice of Leadbetter & Reid, and was formed in 1909, when Thomas Greenshields Leadbetter (born 1859) went into semi-retirement, and James McLellan Fairley (born 1860) took Robert Stirling Reid (born 1883) into partnership. Reid had been articled to Leadbetter & Fairley 1901-05 and had remained as junior draughtsman for two years, subsequently spending two years in the office of Peddie & Washington Browne until offered the partnership. In the same year he was granted a commission in the 1st Lowland Brigade Field Artillery TA, having previously served in the Queen's Mounted Infantry, from which time onwards he was usually known as 'Gunner' Reid. He saw much service abroad in the First World War, commanding the 310th City of Edinburgh Battery, 78th Lowland Brigade, and reaching the rank of Colonel. According to Dr J S Richardson's obituary he was quite remarkably sociable.

Over the next thirty-five years the practice provided a number of new houses and alterations and additions to many large properties in Edinburgh, the Lothians and the Borders. After the Great War they also engaged in improvement work on several commercial and leisure-related buildings, and in the 1920s began to take on industrial and hospital work. At some point during the 1930s Morton John Heddell Cowie (born 1905) joined the practice. Cowie was involved in a part-time partnership with David Gardiner Hardie (born 1896) between 1935 and 1940, and from 1939 the two carried out the design and construction of air raid shelters across Edinburgh, Hardie patenting his own shelter design in the following year. Cowie's involvement in this sphere led to Leadbetter, Fairley and Reid also providing plans, section and elevations for air raid shelters across the capital.

Fairley retired in 1938 and died on 18 May 1942 at Mount Pleasant, Inverugie, Peterhead; Reid in 1947. Cowie, who had returned to the practice after service in the war, moved office in the summer of 1948 to 53 Manor Place where he continued a successful independent practice under his own name.
