192 pp, 8vo, HC in dust jacket. B&w illus. "This story of the success and failure of a family engaged in the dyeing industry is the first to take an objective look at Pullars of Perth...by the mid 19th-century 'Pullars of Perth' had become a by-wo rd for fast and efficient service, especially in dry-cleaning, not only in London, but in Paris and Berlin!
