Archibald A. Revie: A Personal Tribute

We regret to record the death of Mr Archibald Armour Revie which occurred suddenly at his home “Glenholm”  a week past on Wednesday. He was the son of the town miller and first started business on his own behalf in 1911 when he bought the firm of Chemists and Druggists, which was conducted by the late Dr. T. Harvie Thomson.
