Biographical history

The Dundee Calendering Company Ltd was incorporated in 1908. It was housed in a complex called the Dundee or Queen Street Calendar, built in around 1822. In its early days it was managed by A.J. Warden. In the 1950s Alexander Henderson and Sons Ltd acquired many of their shares, and possibly a controlling interest in the company. By 1960 the company was a subsidiary of Low Brothers & Co (Dundee) Ltd, and thus eventually became part of Don & Low (Holdings) Ltd
