"M. BLACK, EXCELSIOR CHINA SHOP AND MUSIC DEPOT, HAMILTON. CONSIDERING that Mr. H. M. Black’s glass and china warehouse and musical depot combined form the leading establishment of the kind either in Hamilton or in the county of Lanarkshire, he is well justified in adopting as his trade-mark the device “Excelsior.” The premises occupy a prominent and commanding position facing the New Cross of the town, and close to the central station of the Caledonian Railway. The warehouse forms a gusset or triangular corner at the New Cross, and it has thus two extensive frontages, one facing Quarry Street, and the other facing Chapel Street. For the exhibition of Mr. Black’s immense quantity and variety of stock no fewer than twelve massive windows are requisitioned around the frontages of the warehouse. The interior of the premises are conveniently divided into different departments, with a neatly arranged office in the centre, while all around are counters, shelves, cases and stands, the basement of the building consisting of capacious storage accommodation. The general aspect of the Excelsior warehouse is that of a grand fancy bazaar, the multitude of choice and artistic articles forming quite a dazzling spectacle. China tea sets, dinner, bedroom and toilet sets in the newest patterns, neatest shapes and at the lowest prices are set out in the richest profusion for the inspection of customers. There is a magnificent collection also of home and foreign glass in different colour and designs, Bohemia vases, flower stands and fern shades, gas globes, and brown teapots. Mr. Black keeps a choice selection of articles suitable for useful presents, and, as his prices compare favourably with those of other firms, he does a very extensive business in this connection. The stationery department comprises a large assortment of plain and fancy papers, fancy goods of all sorts, and a considerable stock of nick-nacks and other small wares, handy, useful and ornamental.

BLACK H. M. (x1906), 'Musikal.-, Piano- u. Orgel-Handlung'


In the music depot Mr. Black shows a number of pianofortes, American organs, and harmoniums, which he claims will well bear inspection, and he points out that as he obtains these high-class musical instruments direct from the makers, he is in a position to supply them at wholesale prices. Here also is a choice assortment of violins from the modest figure of four shillings and sixpence, and a special line of melodeons and concertinas from three and sixpence. Violin strings and fittings of the finest quality are always in stock, and there is a large supply of sheet and other music to be had at all times. Mr. Black tunes and repairs pianos, harmoniums, and organs at reasonable rates, and so satisfactorily is this work performed that he has an ever-growing connection among the gentry and leading inhabitants of the district. Personally Mr. Black is a most agreeable young man, and, during the ten years he has been in business, has established not only a commercial reputation of a very high standard, but has, by his unvarying courtesy, integrity, and rectitude, raised himself to a very high degree in the estimation of his fellow-townsmen."

BROWN George A.

"GEORGE A. BROWN, DEALER IN PIANOFORTES AND AMERICAN ORGANS, 678, EGLINTON STREET, AND 2, MAXWELL ROAD, GLASGOW. MR. G. A. Brown established his admirably organised business in Pollokshields, in 1878. During the succeeding decade his thorough technical knowledge of the trade enabled him to create such a valuable and substantial connection, that in 1888 he found it judicious to remove to the splendidly commodious premises which he now occupies. The premises stand upon a commanding corner site at the junction of Eglinton Street and Maxwell Road. The position forms one of the stations of the tramway system, and it is the point at which the Pollokshaws Road, the Maxwell Road, and Eglinton Street diverge towards several important residential suburbs of the city. Nor do the special advantages which Mr. Brown has secured end here. The premises themselves are more commodious than those of any other establishment of the same class in Glasgow. There are two ample show-windows facing Eglinton Street and three to Maxwell Road, which, with their splendid assortments of novelties in the specialities which have made Mr. Brown’s reputation constitute never-failing points of attractive interest in the two thoroughfares.

'Piano-Handlung' (x1906)


 The interior, which has a depth of fifty feet, affords copious space for the effective display of a great variety of pianofortes by the most celebrated makers, Mr. Brown’s intimate and extensive relations with whom enable him to offer their choicest productions to his customers on exceptionally advantageous terms. Even more thoroughly representative is Mr. Brown’s assortment of American organs, of which he holds one of the largest and best stocks in Scotland, being, in particular, the sole agent for Newman Brothers’ celebrated American organs. Amongst the stocks of other musical instruments which Mr. Brown holds, the violins are entitled to special notice for their number and rare tone, some of them being regarded by experts as equal to the work of the old masters. In the warehouse will always be found a choice and comprehensive selection of sheet music, including all approved novelties, and a very full collection of popular old English, Scotch and Irish songs and ballads. To the rear is a well-appointed office with all the appliances for the convenient despatch of commercial business." Progress - Commerce 1894, Rivers of the North, 1894 (messybeast.com)

"JAMES BRUNSKILL, MANUFACTURER AND IMPORTER OF MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS, 356, SCOTSWOOD ROAD, NEWCASTLE-ON-TYNE; AND 60, BRIDGE STREET, BERWICK-ON-TWEED. MR. Brunskill commenced business on his own account some ten years ago at 43 and 45, Bridge Street, Berwick-on-Tweed, afterwards removing to No. 60. A very large measure of success attended his well-directed and strenuous efforts, and in 1892 he opened the Newcastle house as a branch of his business, still retaining the Berwick-on-Tweed depot as the head manufacturing quarters. The premises at Newcastle comprise a spacious shop with two large plate-glass windows, well adapted for the display of their valuable and attractively arranged contents. The interior has been fitted up in an elaborate and superior style, every convenience being possessed for forwarding the trade. At the rear are extensive warehouses and various workshops, in which the manufacture of violins, and the repair of all kinds of instruments are largely carried on. Being both manufacturer and importer, the proprietor, who has had a large experience in every branch of the business, is able to provide instruments of all kinds and of the best possible quality. The pianos and organs in stock are thoroughly representative, and include some fine productions by Collard & Collard, Brinsmead, Justin Browne, Neumeyer, and other first-class makers, for whom the proprietor holds the special agency, whilst the American organs include the latest specialities of such firms as the Bell Organ Company, Smith Organ Company, Sterling Organ Company, and other makers of equal merit, and ranging in price from £6 to 150 guineas. The pianofortes, whether cottage, semi-grand, grand, or iron-frames, are invariably rich in tone, of good touch, and handsome in appearance.


Pianoforte-maker and/or pianoforte dealer ca. 1894


Harmoniums, American organs, as well as pianos, are replete with the latest improvements, and finished in a sound, durable, and thoroughly workmanlike manner. As a manufacturer of violins, Mr. Brunskill has shown himself one of the most expert and capable in the Kingdom. His instruments are made after the famous models of Antonius Straduarius and Nicholas Amati, and the greatest care is exercised at every stage. After some years of close study and experiments, Mr. Brunskill has succeeded in making a coloured transparent varnish which brings out all the delicate beauty of the wood, until his productions seem veritable “Cremonas” in appearance. He was awarded the gold medal at the Edinburgh Exhibition of 1890, as also the highest award, a silver medal, at Newcastle Exhibition, 1893, for the tone and finish of his violins; and Senor Carrodus, “the King of Fiddlers,” says of them: “I find them good in tone, especially handsome, and an excellent copy of Straduarius. They will improve with careful use and age.” The proprietor holds, also, extensive assortments of bows and cases, banjos, guitars, mandolines, flutes, piccolos, clarionets, cornets, melodeons, concertinas, &c., as well as a varied selection of the latest and most popular song and dance music. Pianos, organs, and harmoniums are lent out on hire, or can be obtained on easy terms by the hire purchase system. Specially advantageous terms are given to military and fife and drum bands. Mr. Brunskill is regarded as an able member of the branch of business in which he 3s engaged, and his name is synonymous with honourable and straightforward dealings."
