Robt. W. Laidlaw, Meat Market
Number 41 on the Burleigh map, unfortunately not much is known about this establishment--a not uncommon fate when it comes to butchers and history. Laidlaw's business was in operation at least by 1878, as this advertisement shows; by 1898 he worked as a laborer at the New York Fish Hatchery in Caledonia, then moved to Rochester in the early 1900s. He married a Scottish immigrant named Anna, who died a widow in 1922.
