Old Photograph Paper Mills Coulter Scotland

Old photograph of the Paper Mills in Coulter near Aberdeen, Scotland. Culter Paper Mills was founded in 1750 by Bartholomew Smith, a papermaker from England, in the rural location of Culter, just beneath the gorge of Culter Burn. Various companies worked on the lease for the site until Alexander Pirie and Sons of Aberdeen acquired it in 1864. They founded The Culter Mills Paper Co Ltd in 1865, trading in specialized paper products, and rapidly expanded the site at Culter into a large, well equipped facility.
