RELIABLE SAFE WORKS
CLARKE STREET NORTH, CITY ROAD, SOUTH MELBOURNE
May 14 1893
We are now making a pair of folding doors of 3/8 inch solid steel plate, to be covered with massive cedar moulding panels. They will be secured by our Patent Extended Multiple Bolt Lock which throws bolts top bottom and face of the door, all controlled by one key. When finished it will be a very handsome piece of work and the same time a substantial protection against fire and felon. We shall be pleased to show it to you if you were to call. Yours sincerely Marutz and Barke.
