“Sign and Ornamental Painting, Wall Paper and Window Shades.
A pretty-painted sign is desirable in the same way that a properly-written advertisement is–it attracts favorable attention. The superior ability of Mr. Ware as as sign and decorative artist has long been known in Bridgeton, and indeed, throughout this section of the State.
Mr. Ware’s place of business is now located at No. 3 East Commerce street. He is a real artist in the way of ornamental painting, having added to a natural genius for it many years of study and application, and many difficult jobs of work, requiring care, taste and discrimination, are constantly entrusted to him and most satisfactorily executed.
Mr. Ware does sign-painting in all its branches, windows and wagon lettering in paint or gold leaf, and every other branch of the art. He is also a practical house-painter and has built up a large business in this line.
At his store, near the Commerce street bridge, he carries a complete stock of wall-paper, paints and window-shades and is prepared to sell you any of these, and apply them at your house if you wish. His stock is carefully selected and deserves the inspection of buyers.
Mr. Ware was born November 12, 1868, and is a native of Deerfield.”
