John Sweet, painter and decorator, 103 Great Western Road

I am assuming that John Junior took over his father's business.
1901 Census
At 5 Rosehall Street John Sweet Boarder (to John McDonald) Single aged 20 Occupation: Painter (worker, employed) born in Lanarkshier, Glasgow

Perhaps John worked for his father and took lodgings here, or had decided to try working for another decorator.
