Basic Biographical Details

Name: Fairlie, Reid & Forbes

Started: 1919
Ended: c. 1926
Bio Notes: Reginald Francis Joseph Fairlie worked in partnership with George Reid and J Smith Forbes as Fairlie, Reid & Forbes for a brief period around 1920. It appears that the partnership was formed for the purposes of the competition for the Northfield Housing Scheme in Edinburgh in 1919. After producing and executing the winning scheme, Fairlie gradually withdrew from the partnership and from about 1926 was practising on his own as well as seeing the overseeing the completion of the housing estate (Post Office directories show the firms running concurrently in this year) whilst Reid and Forbes remained in partnership.
