Footnotes

  • James Winter was a cabinet maker, broker and appraiser, who also sold and dealt in furniture. Although Winter was active as a furniture maker between the years 1823 and 1840, his business continued to provide: 'A Liberal Price for Second hand Furniture in Large or Small quantities' until 1870.
