Peter McIntyre, was born in Paisley, Scotland and came to Derry in 1844 to work for William Scott. He and Adam Hogg, who managed Tillie and Henderson’s factory, started their own shirt business in Foyle Street in 1853.
In 1864 McIntyre, Hogg & Co moved to large and modern premises at the City Factory in Queen Street. The scale of their business can be easily judged from this view of the factory’s collar machine room taken in 1919
