T. Bush's Drapery - Shop Displays, Wanganui, New Zealand

Journal by historyhead

I found this in the Wanganui Chronicle dated 10th April, 1876 via the paperspast website, National Library of New Zealand.

"The shutters of which were taken down for the first time on Saturday night. Taking into consideration the space at the disposal of the artiste, the manner of disposal did infinite credit, whoever he was, and few better arranged or more attractively decorated shop windows have been seen in Wanganui than Mr Bush's on Saturday night. There was little or no attempt at a gorgeous display of colours, but there was a simple blending of shade, the proprietor apparently believing in the motto 'that good wine needs no bush", and an artistic arrangement of fabric which augurs well for the resources of the new establishment".

I have many more advertisements like these regarding Thomas Bush's Drapery Business in Wanganui and then later 'Union Clothing Co', which was in Wellington. Any other information would be very much apprieciated.
