GLOBE OPTICAL COMPANY.
The Manufacturing, Wholesale
and Retail Optical Establish
ment of Greenville, Shows
Marked Progress on the
Fourth Year of Its Existence.
While the Globe Optical Company of
Greenville, S. C. is just entering its
fourth year of existence and is still
voutig in coniparison to the many years
of experience of its officials.
Dr. A. A. Odom, President and Man
ager has ten years experience in the op
tical profession besides being a graduate
in his profe8sion from the most reputa
ble and largest optical colleges in the
world. This company has every instru
nient of merit in their office for measur
ing any refractive errors in sight.
Drs. udom & Odom established this
concern some four years ago. owing to
their phenomional growth and rapid in
crease of business they were compelled
to abandon their former location in the
Wright Building for larger and more
commodious quarters. Their main of
fices, manufacturing, wholesole and re
tail departments are now conducted
from the ground floor of the Masonic
Temnple, where they occupy the hand
somest suit of ofilces in the state.
On the 16th of February this compa
ny dot.bled their capital stock to enable
them to take care of their fast growing
husiness. Mr. A. 11. Sema e was made
-wetary and treasurer of the firimi. and
will look after the wholesale end
of ' tiet bisinetss. Mr. Sebade is an old
residfe'nt of Greenlville and is a m-In who
