W. & A.K. Johnston

The firm of W. & A.K. Johnston was one of the major map publishing houses of the 19th century. William Johnston (1802–1888) and his brother Alexander Keith Johnston (1804–1871) originally trained as engravers, and founded the firm in 1826. Their offices were based in St Andrew Square in Edinburgh's New Town, with their printworks based at the Edina Works, off Easter Road. Keith Johnston became Geographer-Royal for Scotland in 1843, whilst William later became Lord Provost of Edinburgh and was knighted.

Otto's is a family run business and was founded in Exeter, Devon in 2013, when we took on our first retail space in Exeters' up and coming independent area around Fore Street. I founded Otto's as a young 22 year old, after leaving my hometown of Coventry and my job in the construction trade, with a modest pot of savings as a start up!

The original shop dated back to the late 1800's where it had many incarnations, such as a butchers and a car showroom, it has always been a great retail space, full of character! We operated both our webstore and shop from here for 3 years before we sadly outgrew the space due to the expansion of our webstore.

We moved into our new warehouse & showroom in May 2016. We instantly fell in love with the industrial aspect of the space which is a complimentary backdrop for our stock. The warehouse provided us with a large retail space, stock room, office, workshop and loading bay and was a huge step forward from our humble origins.

The warehouse dates back to the 1930s, when it served as a Morris car garage, and a telephone exchange during the 1950's & 1960's. It retains all its original features including it's concertina garage doors, exposed pipework and beams.

Otto's is now run by a father & son team, Lewis & David Macskimming. David runs the workshop & restoration while I, Lewis run the website, shipping and logistics. We source stock from all over Europe and ship worldwide, providing well curated and sympathetically restored 20th century antiques.
