Part Ten ~ Clothiers of Westport

June 18, 2017

There were a great number of merchant tailors and clothiers popping up around Westport in the early 1900’s.  No matter what your needs were, there was someone available to make you look your best.  There was also an abundance of general stores, grocery and bakery shops.  The following ads were found in turn-of-the-century editions of The Westport Mirror.


Ephraim Wiseman had his clothing store on Main Street East (partway down the block between Spring and Bedford Streets).



 Declan Foley sold clothing, shoes and general goods at his shop on Main Street.



John E. Whaley was a merchant tailor on Church Street who specialized in tweeds, worsteds, serges, fancy vestings and overcoatings.
