  The power of the press !  

John Eaton's special Christmas display must have been well known locally.
Here we can see it reported in the local paper on Christmas Day, 1888. (The newspaper staff and printers were working even at Christmas !)

Pictures by kind permission of the Old Bell Museum,
Montgomery Civic Society

Mr Eaton was probably pleased to see this report in the Montgomeryshire Express. It was better than an advertisement and free !
On the right we have enlarged the image of Mr Eaton from the photograph on the previous page.

He certainly looks proud of his work!
