Crystal Palace

Among our large and flourishing business houses, that of the Crystal Palace must be accorded a prominent place. This business was started in l887 in a small way, by Mr. Adler, in the Wisdom block, and enjoyed exceptional prosperity from the start. Last November he was compelled to move to his new quarters and now occupies a floor space of 50×100. In this he carries a very heavy line of jewelry, musical instruments, books, stationery, toys. etc. His jewelry department of which we present an interior cut, is by far the handsomest in the city, provided as it is with the elegant set of fixtures. The stock is an unusually valuable one, including watches, clocks, diamonds, precious stones in endless variety, optical goods, silver and gold jewelry of every description.
The manufacturing and repairing department is a special feature, having an expert workman in charge of it. In his musical goods department he has the agency of such established makes as Decker & Sons and Chickering pianos, and Smith & Barnes organs, besides the leading manufacturers of stringed instruments. Bicycles and supplies are also carried, his specialty being the Columbia.” the king of all wheels.” He has given this department its own personal attention and as it consequence has sold more wheels than all other agencies combined. Mr. Adler also carries as large and fine a line of vocal and instrumental sheet music as any house to the state, and gives mall orders his most careful attention. In books, stationery, toys, etc., his line is an unusually heavy one, and dealing altogether with Eastern houses, he is enabled to give his customers the benefit of his experience in purchasing. In stationery he carries a very heavy line, doing quite an extensive jobbing business. He is also agent for all the leading periodicals and newspapers.
