Transcript THE LARGEST AND MOST COMPLETE Architectural Foundry and Galvanized-Iron Works IN THE UNITED STATES. L. MESKER & CO. EVANSVILLE. IND. MANUFACTURERS OF 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. Send us your orders and SAVE MONEY I GET superior work, made and finished up by special machinery, GET full and complete details and instructions for putting up the work, GET prompt shipments and accurate measurements, GET SATISFACTION! Write us for prices and give accurate measurements of proposed building, and state which of our designs you 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. BE CAREFUL WITH MEASUREMENTS, AND ADDRESS ALL LETTERS PLAINLY TO GEO. L. MESKER * CO., EVANSVILLE, IND.
