W. A. Foster, Boot and Shoemaker, 91, St. Vincent Street.

    Among the votaries of Saint Crispin in Glasgow, the name of Mr. W. A. Foster, boot and shoemaker, 91, St. Vincent Street, stands prominently forward. This business was established in the year 1839 in Glasgow, and has been carried on in the present premises for the past three years. The father of the existing proprietor was the founder of this concern, and the trade has always been conducted under this title. The warerooms and premises underneath are in all respects thoroughly adapted to the requirements of the trade, and the finest premises of its kind in Glasgow.

    The proprietor acts as sole agent in Glasgow for Mr. S. Winter, of Nos. 9 and 11, Sussex Place, South Kensington, London, and holds a royal appointment to H.R.H. the late Prince Consort. His business connection is world-wide. The premises have a commanding appearance. The matter of decoration has been most carefully and minutely considered down to the very slightest detail.
