Notes The Garnkirk and Glasgow Railway was an early railway built to carry coal to Glasgow from the Monkland coalfields. It opened officially on 27 September 1831. Most of its original route remains open today.

Maclure and Macdonald were engravers and lithographic printers active in the nineteenth century. Andrew Maclure and Archibald Gray MacDonald established the business in Glasgow in 1835. They had premises in Trongate, at 57 Buchanan Street (from 1851), and later in Bothwell Street. The firm also opened offices in Liverpool (1840), London (1845) and Manchester (1886). In 1851 Maclure, MacDonald & Co imported a Sigl machine from Germany which was capable of printing 600 sheets an hour. In 1853 they invented a power-driven lithographic printing press.
