James Steel, Glass Stainer, Embosser, Gilder, &c., 104, Renfrew Street.—
Mr. James Steel commenced business in the year 1880. He follows the profession of a glass stainer, embosser, and gilder, and does a very considerable business, as may be inferred from the fact that he employs, on an average, some eight or ten hands. Glass staining and embossing was never such an important branch of industry as it is at the present time, nor has it ever been carried out to such a degree of perfection and excellence. Mr. James Steel is a most accomplished artist in his line, and he is employed to a large extent by the chief wholesale firms engaged in the trade, which fact is of itself strong evidence of his skill and capacity.
As an honourable and upright trades-man, and as a very worthy citizen, he is greatly respected, and his business connection is steadily increasing. He executes private orders, and is most punctual to his engagements, whilst his charges are extremely moderate.
