Cold is the strong weapon which moths are unable to resist,
and you can use this weapon from now until autumn by placing
your fur or cloth garments and your fur rugs in our cold
storage vaults. Entrust them to us and you will be relieved

the dangers of fire and theft.

Before your furs and winter garments are hung in their
places they will be thoroughly blown with compressed air, re
modeled if you direct, and then after a cold summer will be in
fine condition when you want them for next season.
Special cleaning or repairing which your furs may require
will, on request, be done during the summer before August 1st
at rates less than those charged during the winter season.
