"JOS. A. LATHAM, Surveyor and Engineer, Swarts' Building, No. 87 Weybosset
Street. -- Any one desirous of purchasing real estate in Rhode Island will
find it profitable to pay a visit to Mr. Jos. A. Latham, surveyor and
engineer, Swarts' Block, rooms Nos. 50 and 51, No. 87 Weybosset Street. He
is a gentleman of midde-age, of thorough business-like manners, and brings a
large and varied experience to bear upon all matters relating to
engineering, surveying and the transfer of real estate. Mr. Latham was born
in Providence, and possesses a large acquaintance with the leading business
men of the State. Mr. Latham's business had been identified with all the
great improvements connected with the enlargement of every branch of the
business. A rapidly growing neighborhood is being formed along the Pawtuxet
Valley and vicinity, where new mills and factories are started and doing a
rushing trade. Here Mr. Latham's name is well known as the builder of the
town bridges of Silver Hook, Pawtuxet and Thornton, the latter, one of the
prettiest and most substantial of all the bridges in the State. The town of
Cranston is looked upon as the best developed and most enterprising of the
districts surrounding Providence. Its roads are wide and well laid, and,
under the ten years' supervision of Mr. Latham as town surveyor, have given
every satisfaction. These large improvements, made necessary by the
increase of population, have been under his direct superintendence. Mr.
Latham has been twelve years in business and had carried it on during the
whole of that time at the same address, No. 45 Westminster Street, before
removing to his present location in 'Swarts' Block'."
