Handframed gloves from McGeorge's, Dumfries

James McGeorge took over Robert Scott and Sons in 1881 to become the largest firm in Dumfries.  Four years later it began to specialise in gloves which became particularly popular in colonial markets.  The trade was very successful, and when the large St Michael's Street mills became vacant in 1888 McGeorge's transferred there.  These mills were demolished in 1990 when the company moved to a factory on the outskirts of town.  The factory ceased work in 1992.
