A feature of the Company's policy is to head off second-hand competition, and we
illustrate the " Second-hand Showroom," in which are exhibited all grades of second-hand
Registers and also a line of "Shop-worn" Registers. It is a great advantage to have
these arranged as a separate department as it enables a Salesman to demonstrate either
line he pleases with much greater facility.
The photograph only shows a portion of the room. This department is fitted in much
the same way as the main Showroom, and is in fact uniform with it in the scheme of
decoration. Being fitted with handsome velvet and brass shelves, and being itself
of ample dimensions, it enables us to have at hand a varied selection of second-hand
and shop-worn Registers to show to intending purchasers.
A comfortable room has been provided for the use of the London Sales Agents and Salesmen,
known as the "Agents' Room." Desks around the walls have been provided, and in this
room will be seen from our illustration the blackboard upon which are indicated from
day to day the records made by the London Selling Force. This board has proved to
be of the greatest interest.
