Thomas Russell, one of the largest and most important Liverpool watch manufacturers of the period, retailers of the earliest known (pre-1900) wristwatches for wear by men – years before the Swiss were doing so.
NB: When binding the Journal it was standard practice to discard the separately paginated section of adverts, and all such pages are rare survivors.
