Naseby: ...and a draper's, to boot!

According to an advertisement in the Mount Ida Chronicle of 16 December 1882, Hjorring the draper, clothier and general outfitter opened "new and spacious premises" on the corner of Leven and Earne Streets!

"Mr Hjorring would here draw the attention of the public to the fact that he has no large rents to pay like those in Dunedin, and also that he has no wages to pay for hawkers who travel the country at the expense of those who buy from them. All his goods are obtained in the best and cheapest markets, and he is thus prepared to dispose of them at a price which allows the smallest profit."

Wasn't he SUCH a nice man!!!
