    Howard R. T. Radcliffe, dealer in carpets and draperies, embarked in business for himself, in Toledo, in 1899, being the successor of Sterling & Company, whose employ he entered, in 1880, in Cleveland, where the main office of the company was located, and, in 1894, he came to Toledo to become the general manager for the Toledo branch, which was established in 1879. In 1899, Mr. Radcliffe took over the Toledo interests of Sterling & Company and has been located at 327 Superior street since that time. The display rooms usurp the three floors and basement, in all some 12,000 square feet of floor, besides the factory in the rear, wherein about fifty expert designers and decorators are employed in making up the draperies and carpets for the trade. The business consists in supplying carpets, draperies and interior decorations for individual residences, the contracts made sometime including the complete furnishing, as to furniture, etc., in order to have the general effect artistic and beautiful. The business has a large patronage in Toledo and also in the three States adjacent, as well as New York and Pennsylvania.
