Many times we find browsing through boxes of photographs and news clippings a story about an event, neatly clipped around the article.
Don't do that ! Save the entire page, because years later it may be the reverse side of the newspaper which is more interesting. Here we have a number of clippings which are the advert on the reverse of the news item. We hope you will enjoy seeing them and we start with an outline advert for a ladies hat and dress - what the well dressed woman in Carluke would wear in 1919 courtesy of Alex S. Richardson in 51 Main Street Wishaw. The next panel is a group of ads from 1919 too. We have James Wilson, 40 Wellgate selling gentlemens shoes, then James Paton 54 High Street has a line in wallpaper for you, next to Mr Brown the Photographer in Lanark and to the right some snippets of LANARK NEWS.
