Notes:
Swans Ltd of Elizabeth St Sydney was founded originally by J. E. Sallier & Co in 1884. In c.1900, the firm was taken over by Messrs Swans. The business originally specialised in plumbers supplies, but later branched into builder's supplies and ironmongery. In 1930 Swans Ltd opened a new paintware department and could boast of being retailers of all kinds of hardware, electrical goods, plumbing supplies, light, heating and building equipment, as well as being manufacturers of hot water heaters, and radio receivers. In 1935 they opened a new department, importing and distributing wallpapers, and the following year advertised that they "can now show a complete range of English and Canadian Wallpapers". By this date they also had branch offices in Parramatta
and Hurstville.
