Wm. Adams & Son

Wm. Adams & Son, Wholesale Fancy Stationers, Importers of French Prints, Manufacturers of Ornamental Boxes,, Pattern Cards, Books, &c., 30 and 32, John Street.-

    A most important industry is that formerly carried on by the firm of A. J. Gaudois, wholesale stationer, importer of French prints, manufacturer of ornamental boxes, pattern cards, books, &c., at 8, South Frederick Street. This business, the partners of which are Mr. Wm. Adams and his son, was established under the title of A. J. Gaudois, twenty years ago.

    The premises consist of offices, workshops, and warehouse, the latter being-equipped with all the modern machinery for the rapid production of ornamental boxes, pattern cards, books, &c. The trade, in which Mr. Adams-employs about forty hands, extends all over Scotland, he having won a great reputation for the artistic taste displayed in his manufactures.

    The maintenance of the old connection is in a measure due to Mr. Adams having adopted the best appliances in his workshop, and his frank and obliging manner ; and the success which has attended his efforts is owing to his upright principles, strict integrity, and equity in all transactions.
