Cth.19th lithograph of McLean Brothers and Rigg, Limited premises. The firm was established in Adelaide in 1879.

William McLean (1845-1905), merchant, from Dumfries, Scotland. The family arrived in Melbourne in 1853 and William completed his education. He was employed first by John McTier and later by the hardware firm, E. Keep & Co. After seven years McLean was ready to open his own hardware business and in 1870 he went into partnership with T. E.
