James Kissack Wine & Spirit Merchants & grocers

Here are a selection of catalogue fronts from James Kissack's "St George's Stores" store on Prospect Hill, Douglas, from around 1938.

His can be seen here with his siblings and parents DmXV. The business is listed in the 1881 Brown's Directory: "Kissack, James (St. George's stores), wine and spirit merchant, general grocer, &c., 3 Athol-st",
and again in 1894 "Kissack James and William, grocer and wine and spirit merchants, 3 Prospect-hill ; residence-1 Woodside-terrace".

And here, a sample of the Christmas fayre offered:

In 1902 James split from his brother, William, as reported in The Isle of Man Examiner. It looks like James operated in Douglas and William in Scarlet.
