Basic Biographical Details

Name: Traill & Stewart
Designation: Architectural practice
Started: After 1898
Ended: 1913
Bio Notes: John Stewart was born on 28 October 1876 and articled to an unspecified practice in Edinburgh, from which he studied at the Heriot-Watt College and the School of Art from 1893. He commenced independent practice at the early age of twenty-two in Lanark, where he must have had some connection, and he seems to have remained there until he was called up for war service in 1914. For at least part of this period he was in partnership with John Traill, of whom little is yet known. Traill retired in 1913 and the partnership was dissolved on 2 February of that year.
