Clothes hanger, J.F. Abbott & Co., Cornwall, ca. 1910.


A wooden hanger from  Cornwall tailor, JF Abbott, ca. 1910.

If the item was made in Cornwall in the Museum is interested in it!


J.F. Abbott. 1901.  The business opened in 1878 and was located in the Liddell Block on Pitt St.


Abbott had two Cornwall locations, one on Pitt St., and a second on Marlborough.



These are just a sample of the documents in the archives at the Cornwall Museum relating to Abbott and other Cornwall businesses.
