Louis Bloom, Picture-Frame and Show-Card Manufacturer, 78 and 86, Stockwell Street.—
Few establishments better represent the industrial art of the picture-frame and show-card manufacturer, than that of Mr. Louis Bloom, which was founded by him at premises farther up the street in 1865, and removed to the present address in 1876. The depot consists of a good-sized shop on the ground floor, and a spacious warehouse on the second flat.
A large and comprehensive stock is held, consisting of German washable gilt mouldings in all varieties (specially imported), prints, lithographs, oleographs, &c., picture scraps of every description, show-cards, &c. A leading speciality in Mr. Bloom’s business, to which the most studied attention is devoted, is the manufacture of picture-frames, a most unique collection of which are at all times on view. Silvering on plate and sheet glass is also performed by a patent process. Twelve hands are permanently employed. Bloom’s picture-frames and show-cards are renowned far and wide for their durability and attractive appearance. The trade is principally wholesale, and well established in town and country.
Since the death of Mr. Bloom, which occurred in 1881, the business has been carried on by Mrs. Louis Bloom under the original title, and under the direct supervision of that lady, who has a thorough knowledge of the trade in all its branches, and has year by year increased the deserved reputation of the house.
