It was in 1871 that brothers George and James Weir set up the engineering firm of G & J Weir and joined the booming industrial scene in the west of Scotland at the height of the great Victorian era of industrial innovation."
The records of G & J Weir are held privately and the University of Glasgow holds the records of William Douglas Weir. Details about both collections are available here.
