Blairgowrie printers film

The Ericht Trust appealed for fund­ing to make a film about the Print­ers, which is now com­plete. A DVD of the His­to­ry of Blair­gowrie Print­ers is now avail­able to buy at £12 from One Voice Office Upper Mill St Blair­gowrie or con­tact jmashaw@btinternet.com direct­ly. There is also a short clip about the print­ing works on YouTube.

The print­ing works in Blair­gowrie was estab­lished in 1855 and was moved to a pur­pose built site in Reform Street in 1880. The own­er, Hamil­ton Scott, worked there as an appren­tice before tak­ing over in 1980 until he retired in 2007. The print­ing works and the machin­ery were list­ed as Cat­e­go­ry B in 2003.
