Hugh MacPherson

MacPherson bagpipes were actually made by Wm. Sinclair, Leith. 

Jim Tweedie also worked for Sinclair and strong similarities can be seen in all three makes of pipes. MacPherson purchased the buiness from Sinclar in 1957 however is was back under Sinclair ownership by 1962.  See William Sinclair for the rest of the story.
The pages to the left are from MacPherson's catalog in the late 40's or early 50's when their shop was located on Ridgeway Road in St. Catharines. 

In the 1960's they relocated on Lake Street, just a few blocks from my house. 

Later they moved downtown on St. Paul Street and finally they closed around 1990.
