Transcript PERSONAL &OME fifteen years ago I first ventured, at the request of many friends and clients, to write a short treatise on the Steeplejack profession. I did so with great trepidation, little thinking that in a short time the first modest issue would be exhausted. It was twice reprinted with the same result, and now there is a greater demand, so I have endeavoured to extend it, the reason being that probably my own experience in the industry will be of benefit to those who come after me. Having now completed almost forty years in the trade and serving the usual apprenticeship with other executives and workmen of the firm I trod a course just like the apprentices of to;day, though they have the benefit of knowledge gained and the progress of the intervening years. Advances have been made in methods of working and one of the penalties of progress was a necessity to reorganize. I had not been in the business very long when the firm was obliged to take over adjoining premises, and in the next decade it was proved that even the generous provisions made for expansion at that time were not sufficient. To;day plans are in hand for the erection of a modern and composite building which will permit of greater research and production of our lightning conductors, as well as provide amenities for the workpeople, commensurate with present day ideas. I should not like this opportunity to pass without expressing my appreciation of the loyalty of all employees, and the continued support of our clients. It has been our endeavour to give complete satisfaction, and it is heartening each year to welcome new customers who must have been convinced of the soundness of the Macdonald contract, and the excellence and reliability of workmanship. It is the firm's aim constantly to maintain an unimpeachable standard, and towards this end I would ask for the fullest cooperation of our clients, assuring them that our entire steeplejack service is always at their immediate command. M.M.
