Statement of Interest

This was the business premises of James Chalmers (1782-1853), inventor of the adhesive postage stamp, who traded as a printer, publisher, stationer and bookseller. The business was established by his father and brother, and continued by his son Charles in 1853 who in 1868 took David Winter into partnership; the firm moved to 24 Castle Street in 1915 and to 16-19 Dock St (former Exchange Coffee House), also listed, in 1926, where it remained (as David Winter and Son) until removing to new premises in 1992.
