      Established in the Spring of 1904 they have in the course of a few years built up a very remarkable business.

      The gentlemen at the head of the firm, Mr. R. D. Lang and Mr. E. D. Lang, are men of business ability and integrity. They have had large experience in their line, having been connected with the dry goods trade for fully twenty-five years and enjoy the confidence of the public both here and throughout the surrounding country. They make a specialty of Fine Dress Goods, Women's Garments, Linens, Carpets, Curtains and Wall Papers. Fully half of their entire premises is devoted to the sale of House Furnishings.

      They occupy their own premises in the fine new block on the corner of King and Foundry Sts , shown in the accompanying illustration, which is surrounded by their staff, of whom they are justly proud.

      The outstanding features of their business are RELIABLE AND UP TO DATE GOODS, GOOD VALUE AND GOOD SERVICE.

      Lang Bros. & Co. extend an invitation to all visitors and citizens to visit the store which will be decorated suitably for the occasion.
