The entrance to 367 Union Street, address of James B. Nicol, and J. & A. Ogilvie, upholsterers, at 369 in around 1937.

J. & A. Ogilvie was a home furnishers and cabinet makers started in Aberdeen in 1866. In 1955 the company was taken over by Wylie and Lochhead, Ltd. of Glasgow, who were in turn taken over by the House of Fraser in 1957.

J. & A. Ogilvie operated under its own name until about 1971.

In the period of this photograph the business's factory was located on Willowbank Road. In 1966 a modern factory was built adjoining one of their existing depositories at 16 Albury Road. The factory cost £80,000 and was overseen by long time company employee, Mr J. Baxter.

See an Evening Express article by Evelyn Gauld from 16th August 1966 (page 6) for more details about the new factory and the history of the company.
