Transfer of Business Important Notice Alfred Packwood, Carting Contractor, Coal and Firewood Merchant, 50, Park Road, Rushden wishes to inform the public that he has purchased the furniture removal business lately carried on by Messrs. Scroxton and Co. of Portland Road, Rushden, and that he has been fortunate enough to secure the services of Mr. Bert Scroxton who has made a reputation as a first-class packer of furniture, and who has had 15 years’ experience in the work to manage this department of his business, and hopes that by careful and prompt attention to customers’ requirements he may have the patronage that has been extended to Messrs. Scroxton and Co. in years past.
