Although the directory lists John Eggleston, it is Joseph Eggleston.  Kelly's Directory for 1933 shows that the firm had passed to Joseph William Eggleston, the son of Joseph.  The firm was described as a WATCHMAKERS,  JEWELLERS & SILVERSMITH .  In 1936, William Shore was employed there as a salesman.
