J. Boag, Tool Manufacturer, 51, Smith Street.—
A very thriving business is carried on by Mr. J. Boag, who is widely known in all branches of trade connected with the work of a general smith. The business was originally founded in 1872 by the present proprietor. The premises occupied comprise a very spacious smithy and general iron store. A small but highly efficient staff is constantly engaged.
Mr. Boag commands a large business in all departments of work incidental to the trade of a smith, and has gained a first-class reputation for the very superior manner in which all orders are carried out. Special attention is given to the manufacture of the various descriptions of tools used by masons. For the construction of these goods the firm has been noted for a number of years, and there are few manufacturers in this branch whose productions have gained such popularity in the trade. All work is executed under the personal direction of the proprietor, who is essentially practical in his knowledge of the trade and can thus ensure his numerous patrons goods of the very highest class. The business has been very successful throughout, and the reputation of the establishment has been much enhanced by the promptitude and dispatch shown in executing all orders.
