Jonas Brook & Brothers

Jonas Brook & Brothers, Sewing Cotton Manufacturers, 10 Garthland Street.—

    The world-wide celebrity attained by Messrs. Jonas Brook & Brothers, manufacturers of sewing cotton renders any commendation or praise of their goods almost superfluous or unnecessary, but the branch of their business established in Glasgow, by reason of its ever-increasing trade and importance has special claims upon our consideration and attention. The business premises of the firm are situated at No. 10, Garthland Street, and from there all towns in Scotland are supplied, and where all their various makes of sewing and crochet cottons can be seen.

    Their Patent glacé thread has a world-wide reputation, and their six-cord and new soft machine cottons are noted for strength, smoothness, and finish, which cannot be excelled by any other maker of sewing-thread. Each reel is marked with the ticket bearing the well-known “Goat’s Head”, the crest, of the Brook family.

    The immense mills at Meltham Mills, hear Huddersfield, Yorkshire, rank with the largest industrial establishments in the world, and the goods manufactured by Messrs. Jonas Brook & Brothers have been awarded innumerable prize medals and diplomas of honour at all the principal Exhibitions since the first held in London in 1851. They also do a very large export trade, and have agencies and travellers in all parts of the world.

    Their Glasgow branch is under the able direction of Mr. R. T. Challand, a gentleman well known and respected in commercial circles. The connections of the firm are well founded upon the eminent reputation it has so long enjoyed, and under the energetic and judicious management of Mr. Challand the business receives in all its details a strict personal supervision, and every advantage accruing from his obliging disposition and mercantile experience.
