Messrs. David Cohen and Company's
For many years the undoubted leading business concern in West Maitland has been the great house of David Cohen and Company. It was founded in Maitland by Mr. David Cohen and others of the name ; its commerce has expanded with the advance of the years; and it has now branches in Newcastle, Sydney, and London ; with offshoots in many towns in the Northern district and elsewhere in New South Wales. The house gave a representative of the town to the Parlia- ment of the country in the person of Mr. L. W. Levy, whose service, though short, was so valuable that hi« retirement was viewed with general regret, and the residont partners have invariably taken an intelligent and earnest part in all the more important public matters. The picture in the supplement represents the* present establish- ment, in the form it assumed after a great fire in 1865 destroyed the older edifice.
