Alex Peate & Co., Newcastle
Alex Lees Peate operated as a tailor from around 1899 in Hunter Street, Newcastle. He did so well that in 1905 he moved to larger premises in the same street, and later opened a second store. He did not become “& Co.” until 1910, when brothers George and William, as well as Mr Hollinshead. joined the firm. William died in 1924 at the age of 62 years. In 1936 the firm was registered as Alex Peate & Co. Ltd. George died in 1938, aged 57 years.
Alex then died the following year, aged 62 years. The firm continued until 1977.
