Pickfords: The Careful Movers

Aab_31 For those of you who like visual aids for famous cases, we're pleased to bring you this ad for Pickford & Co., Carriers & Railway Agents, from the 1850-51 Post Office Glasgow Directory.  Pickfords, as all thinking people know, was the carrier who in 1853 lost the mill shaft in Hadley v. Baxendale.  Remember you can click on the ad to get a larger version.
