I9, Washington Street, Boston
A progressive Boston firm is that of Owens Brothers, which started a few years ago in a small way and has developed sufficient business to move into new quarters at I9 Washington Street, where the firm has 2,500 square feet of space. The firm manufactures printing and seaside specialties which include trays, book marks, etc., and also deals in all classes of aluminum novelties. At the last Mechanics’ Fair in Boston, Owens Brothers had the exclusive right to sell aluminum goods, and this summer they will have a booth at Crescent Beach, a summer resort, of Boston. The booth will contain 80 square feet of floor space, and will be open from June Ist to the last week of September. Something novel recently manufactured by Owens Brothers, were some aluminum cards, on one side of which were printed the portrait of Edward P. Shaw, a candidate for Congress from the Sixth Congressional District of Massachusetts, and on the back of the card was Mr. Shaw's record in public life. Owens Brothers believe that this is the first time aluminum has entered the political arena.
