  • Notes 
    • Mr. J. A. Schroder, came to Elmira, with his parents when quite young. He received his education here and after having worked at his trade several years in other places, he returned to Elmira and opened business on his own account. He has now an up-to-date Gents' furnishing establishment in which he keeps for sale a full line of tweeds, gents' furnishings, hats and caps, ready-made clothing etc. He makes a specialty of custom tailoring and has a good patronage. [Name of the store was J. A. Schroder, Men's Outfitter; it was in the same building as F. W. Lipphardt, Barber.]
