Garrould’s for Distinctive Staff Uniforms

Why not buy your maid a new uniform this Christmas. One chosen from Garrould’s enormous stock, the largest in London. You will be amazed to see how much smarter and efficient your maid looks in a Garrould’s outfit. You can always distinguish a Garrould’s uniform from any other, that is why all the smart London hostesses come to Garrould’s for their staff uniforms. The secret lies not only in the cut, style and fine workmanship, but also in the great care that is taken in obtaining materials which combine refinement of appearance with hard wear in use. The dresses are made in 21 stock sizes, all carefully worked out to fit the average figure. If you cannot call, write for Garrould’s catalogue of Service Uniforms, beautifully illustrated in full colours, sent post free.
