Hugh Campbell, Harness and Sadlery
Number 19 on the Burleigh map, this firm dated back to Scottish immigrant Colin Campbell, who founded it in 1843 and later took on his nephew Hugh (1855-1920) as a partner. Their quality of work on saddles, harnesses, and collars was known throughout Western New York. In 1891, the sudden death of Colin passed along ownership to his nephew--perhaps the occasion for this advertisement printed during the same year.
