A Peep Round the Shops.


A Peep Round the Shops. (Continued). In continuing this article, we beg for- bearance from those whose trading estab- lishments we omitted to mention in our last week's issue. In extenuation of this fact, we may state that, owing to the great utilitarian demands made upon our advertising columns, we were precluded from doing the justice to the article we had intended. Nevertheless, it was with no little satisfaction to us to find that the Rhondda Leader has been found beneficent to both readers and tradesmen Alike. Tradesmen who advertised, like readers who read, got value for money. For a more comprehensive establish- ment to satisfy the: fastidious demands of the Christmas present seeker Mrs. Wil- liams, Lower Post Office, Tonypandy, would be really hard to beat. Her pre- mises are packed with toys of every tiescription which so delight the juvenile mind; also there is a great stock of Christmas cards and novelties to choose from.. • The general furnishing premises of Mr. H. Car dash, lower end, Tonypandy, con- tain some very useful articles for domestic use. And shoppers would certainly do a good thing for themselves by going to see his windows, which are full of bargains of almost every description. Great prominence is given to the famous Bell pianos in the windows of Mr. Tom Rhys, house furnisher, Dunraven Street, Tonypandy. Besides pianos, a large variety of useful household articles are to be found here at prices which bear favourable comparison with other estab- lishments. Mr. Anthony Rees, gents' mercer and outfitter, Dunraven Street, is this week making a very pretty show of gents' neck- wear, handkerchiefs, gloves, &c., suitable for seasonable presents; whilst across the road Messrs. Hipps and Co., the Public Benefit Tailors, are showing remarkable value for money in the clothing line. Their 19s. 6d. suits are still in great demand, and Mr. Oheckland, the manager, is always pleased to show prospective customers what splendid value they are giving. Books and stationery to suit everybody are to be had from Mr. Howells, book- seller, Dunraven Street, Tonypandy. The very latest things in these lines are to be had here in bewildering profusion. As is alreadv known, Mr. L. Ladd, J photographic artist, Tonypandy, besides 'I keeping on his large studio, has also opened a photographic depot next door to Mr. Willie Llewellyn's chemist shop, Tonypandy. For the convenience of those who come together at Yuletide and wish to be photographed, Mr. Ladd is keeping his studio open during the Christmas and New Year holidays. Mr. Geo. Clark, the well-known motor engineer, whose establishment is next door to Mr. Danix's temperance bar, is displaying a large quantity of gramo- phones, phonographs and records. These would make very seasonable Christmas gifts. Mr. H. S. Haigh, or better known as The Penygraig Herbalist," 42, Tylacelyn Road, Penygraig has in his windows a splendid show of perfumes, fancy toilet soaps, coombes, hair brushes, marked at extremely low prices. Mr. Haigh is leaving his nresent premises early in the new year and will on January 10th open his commodious new premises at No. 50, Tylacelyn Road (eight doors lower down from his present address), where he hopes to have a continuance of our readers' con- I fidence he had enjoyed for five years.
