A Meeting Has Been Called

Whilst reading the Classified section of a San Francisco Chronicle from the 1880s, I came across an advertisement titled “A Meeting Has Been Called”; this is what it said:

“A MEETING HAS BEEN CALLED for all those wanting clothing at less than one-half what they were made for; shall meet at ORIGINAL MISFIT CLOTHING PARLORS, n.w. cor. Post and Dupont sts.”

This advertisement was sandwiched in between an ad calling for a stockholder’s meeting, and another listing dividends.
