John McFarlane

John McFarlane, Plumber and Gasfitter, 184, Eglinton Street.

    Few questions are of greater importance than the economical and healthy furnishing, of human habitations with regard to sanitary arrangements, which is worthily represented by the well-known house conducted by Mr. John McFarlane, and originally founded in 1882.

    The ground floor of the premises is retained as a sale-shop and showroom, the workshops being in the rear. Here a large and unique assortment of gaseliers, wash-out closets, and shop and gas fittings are on view. The working plant held is superior, and kept in thorough order. All the workmen employed are picked tradesmen.

    Mr. McFarlane carefully superintends every article made or repaired. The great speciality, in which the house has acquired a high reputation, is sanitary plumbing and the construction and fixture of sanitary appliances generally. The trade is principally local and well-established. The proprietor is a gentleman of practical experience in all branches of the trade, and highly respected by his patrons for his courtesy and attention to all orders entrusted to him. His private address is 60, Paterson Street.
