A brief bit of history with thanks and a promise IN 1908 a Limited Company was formed and the firm has operated sinceas Charles Ogilvy Limited. Under the general manager Lewis A. Burpee, connected with the firm for over twenty-five years, and a dozen or more highly capable managers covering some thirty departments the business has grown very rapidly in recent years. Although our premises are more than three times the size they were in 1908 we need greatly enlarged space now. Crowds at' times are very great, elevators insufficient, and comforts we would like to give are at present beyond us. In all this we ask your patience and assure everyone that as soon as conditions permit we will endeavour to ' give you some relief. MEANTIME, our warmest thanks go out to- one and all, old and new customers for such fine support, and the promise that our simple aim will always continue to be to serve you to the best of our ability.
