THE LARGEST AND MOST COMPLETE
Architectural Foundry and Galvanized-Iron Works
IN THE UNITED STATES.
L. MESKER & CO.
G»st-|boh, Wrought-Iron, (}alvanized-|ron and Woodwork for Store Fronts.
LARGEST AND BEST. We have the
largest and best equipped establishment in the
United States for the manufacture of Store Fronts.
We make all the Cast-Iron, Wrought-Iron, Galvanized-Iron and Woodwork for our fronts in our
own factories, and are not dependent on other
manufacturers for our supplies. There is no other
firm in the country furnishing Store Fronts which
is not compelled to buy some part of the work
from other manufacturers. Persons who buy fronts
from us get them from first hands, all the work
being made under one supervision, and thus they
are sure to get work accurately fitted and harmonious in construction. This cannot be assured
by parties furnishing fronts who are compelled to
buy some parts of the work from other factories.
PRICES THE LOWEST. A careful com
parison of prices will show that there is not a firm
in the country which can compete with us when
quality and quantity of work is considered. It
is simply impossible for them to do it, because we
have the finest special machinery in each department, and can turn out the highest grade of work
in immense quantities and at the lowest cost.
WE SEND DETAILS. With all estimates,
when practicable, we send detail drawings of the
work we propose to furnish, so that our customers
can see, before they order, what they will get. Many
manufacturers cannot afford to do this, because their
work does not show to advantage in detail. Their
elevation drawings do not show the flatness of surface and the buckled galvauized-iron which always
occurs in all the large plain s -rfaces. Our clear detail
pictures show the boldness and beauty of our work,
and it can be seen at a glance thaty;here can be no
buckling in the galvanized-iron. If Customers would
always get full details before ordering, they would
not so often place their orders for work which must
prove unsatisfactory when put on the building.
ANYBODY CAN PUT IT UP. Our work
is so carefully and systematically constructed,
measured and marked that any ordinary mechanic
can put it up. No one need hestitate to place his
order with us on account of living at a distance from
Evansville, and for fear they will have trouble in
putting up the work. Our plain instructions and
details render it impossible to put it up wrong.
Notice our claim that the cost of putting up our
work will not exceed one-half the cost of putting up
the work of other manufacturers. Don't forget this
when you compare prices! We have sold fronts
North, South, East and West, and our customers are
always gratified at the ease with which they are able
to put up our work.
LOW FREIGHT RATES. In quoting prices
we will give approximate cost of freight to destination,
aad will guarantee to equalize freights with any point.
We compete with home factories and all others, and as the
quality of our work makes it especially desirable, and our
designs the latest and handsomest in the market, oui
customers can depend on getting complete satisfaction.

prefer, and we will give you close figures. If the first
story of one design and the second story of another is
desired,they can be so arranged, and we will quote prices
on the work desired.
In order to put our prices down to the lowest possible point, we have reduced our margin of profit to a small per cent, and cannot afford to take risks on parties who
have no commercial rating. We will therefore expect from every customer who is not well rated, a letter of credit from his banker or a merchant in high standing, or he
may send a draft for one-half the amount of purchase, the balance to be paid after goods are shipped, by draft attached to bill of lading. The latter method will insure
prompt shipment of all orders without further investigation.
