Have gun here by Blaikie of Glasgow - Anybody got a decent reference book where i might find his address and when he was active - Kind regards

found him at
Blaikie, J. 27 Stockwell street
j Blaikie, J. 38 & 47 Stockwell
Blaikie, J., 38 Stockwell street
Address reveals more - Mr Blaikie might have even invented sliced bread!

In all seriousness he is credited with the invention of a bead cutting machine.
