Scottish breweries in 1928

Maps. I love maps. You may have noticed from the frequency with which I post them. Unlike an egg, you can't beat a good map.

The previous maps had a few big white spaces. This one is almost nothing but white space:

Scottish brewing was almost completely concentrated in two towns: Edinburgh and Alloa. The only other towns with multiple breweries were Glasgow and Dundee. And the two in Dundee were both owned by the same company, Ballingall.

My source was the 1928 Brewers' Almanack, which lists all the retail brewers in the UK.
