Upper Hockley Street, later, 21, Vyse Street, Birmingham
Another well-known member of the trade has departed from among us, and his place will know him no more. Mr. Edward Scott, jeweller, late of 21, Vyse Street, and for about 15 years of Upper Hockley Street, has closed his business, disposed of plant, &c, and gone to America. I believe he expresses himself as quite disgusted with the " fickle jade " known as the jewellery trade.
Mr. Scott's premises, 21, Vyse Street, have been taken with their fixtures by Mr, E. W. Fitter, the eldest son of Mr. H. Fitter, of the firm of H. Fitter and Sons, Hylton Street, gold chain makers and jewellery factors. Mr. E. W. Fitter has been doing the greater part of the travelling for the firm for some years, so will be able to find customers at once.
