In these days of inclement weather, my thoughts turned to the estimable Drooko. According to advertisements about the Drooko umbrella, it was
- guaranteed not to cut
- rolls up neatly
- is registered
- cannot be had elsewhere
Repairs and recovering were offered:
Umbrellas repaired with the utmost expedition. On receipt of a Post Card our Parcel Carriages, Tricycles, or Messengers will call at any City or Suburban address for Umbrellas to be Repaired or Re-covered and return them when finished
Umbrellas to be Re-covered or Repaired can be sent from any Village or Town Post-Office in the United Kingdom to our Nearest Address.
We return “Post Free”
I am promised, from the advertsing, that if I do bring my old Umbrella (a Drooko of course) from its hiding-place, and it is in a sorry state of disrepairs, then I may “send it to any of the “Drooko” Establishments, and get it re-covered with “Drooko”. When it gets a new roof, and is refurbished, it will “look a’maist as weel’s the new.” Hurrah.
