Messrs Paterson And Barr . Page 331. In July, 1903, Messrs Paterson and Barr, finding that their page 1104 premises in Princes and Richardson Streets were becoming too cramped up for their requirements, acquired the building lately occupied by Messrs Scoullar Brothers in Vogel and Cumberland Streets. These premises, where the wholesale business of the firm is now carried on, reach from street to street and occupy the whole of the Harbour Board section, measuring eighty feet by forty feet. The buildings consist of three floors, a concrete cellar, and an attic floor. Messrs Paterson and Barr have erected an iron yard and store for heavy goods on half a section adjoining, and in the main building there is a large hydraulic lift, which runs from the cellar to the top flat, and is constantly employed taking goods in and out. It is of the greatest advantage in the conduct of the business. The offices, which are large and convenient, are situated at the Vogel Street entrance. The stock has been very well arranged throughout, and everything done to enable a large business to be successfully conducted; but even these extensive premises will no doubt in time become too small for the firm's growing trade. The retail business in Princes Street is much improved by the extra accommodation, and is fitted up to date with all the appliances necessary for a first rate ironmongery business.
