Founded by James Chalmers in January 1748 as the "Aberdeen's Journal" and originally printed and published at an office on the north side of Castle Street, this firm occupied premises in Broad Street from 1894 to 1970. During the 20th century amalgamation took place with the "Aberdeen Free Press" to form Aberdeen Journals Ltd. The company then printed and published its newspapers at rebuilt offices at 20 Broad Street where once lived Dr Alexander Cruden, author of a noted concordance to the bible. Robert Burns the famous Scottish poet visited the Journal offices in 1787.
