Medhurst’s are practically the only Tasmanian firm which give their undivided attention to electric appliances alone, and consequently all who deal with them can be confident of securing the best value for their money, and the increasingly large number of buildings, public and private which are daily being fitted by the Medhurst Electric Company speak for the reputation which the firm is achieving.
The firm has the sole Tasmanian agency fir the famous Osram British made electric lamps and the latest things in electric vacuum cleaners, massage appliances and their stand at the show also includes a large display of the latest patent Fuller Block accumulators now renowned throughout the world.
Everyone interested in ignition for cars, marine engines and all sorts of motors are extended, together with people interested in the appliances for the home, a cordial invitation to visit the company’s stand at the show, where a staff of attendants will be pleased on both days to place the goods before visitors and explain their uses and state their prices.
The firm is making a special feature of heating and cooking appliances and now that electricity has been installed in Bellerive and Lindisfarne, a special invitation is extended to residents of those two suburbs to call and make enquiries.
With the installation of these up to date electrical devices, work in the house can be minimised to a surprising degree, and a look over the Medhurst exhibit should pay anyone for the time spent almost twofold. Electric appliances for the kitchen which are on show include toasters, kettles, irons, stoves, plate heaters, food warmers, sterilisers and many other novel and useful devices.
A large number of these splendid goods have never been exhibited before, as they are absolutely the latest improvements it is possible to obtain anywhere. The whole exhibit is interesting to the highest degree, and it demonstrates the great advance made in electricity during the last couple of years.
Besides the devices mentioned there are many others, too numerous to mention but which the staff will be pleased to show and explain to all inquirers. The almost phenomenal growth of this now well known firm can be gathered from the fact that they employ a staff of over 25 men in their workshop, a staff which includes many skilled mechanics, all of whom are engaged as specialists in the various departments.
All electric work, including repairs to motor-cars, house lighting, and other power installations, and the installation of telephonic systems, etc. is performed successfully by the firm, who solicit your custom.
An application of electricity in which the firm specialise is electric lighting for houses in the country, and the fullest information on this as on other matters, may be obtained from their staff. The application of telephones to farm purposes is another matter to which attention has been given. There seems to be every reason to suppose that the telephone, with the coming of simpler and easier systems of working, is likely to play a much greater part in country life in the future.
Portable electric pocket and hand lamps are another useful modern development, and here too the Medhurst Electrical Co is well to the fore. There are many occasions when an electric lamp may be much handier, safer and more convenient than the old fashioned lamp for the candle held under a hat, which goes out when it is most wanted.
Altogether while this is the first appearance of this firm at the show ground the interest attracted is bound to be such that its is not likely to be the last.
