Notes: NB Arthur Clyne wrote to Mrs Pirie after her husband's death and, when settling up the accounts of the practice, indicates that he has held shares in this compnay. He is uncertain if Pirie also had shares. In November 1902 Bridgeford M Pirie wrote a report for the Caledonian Railway Company about the condition of the laundry, perhaps suggesting some continuing connections with it.
