Business Card c1895

This Victorian business card carries a photograph of one of our products of the time, a ship coal scale.
 
It is very similar to the Medhurst design Fig 25 which used a beam scale, and which we had continued to manufacture after George Herbert had bought the Medhurst weighing business in 1881.
 
The beam has been replaced by a spring balance, most probably bought from Geo.Salter & Co, as our letter book shows that they were an important supplier at that time.
 
Also on the right is a drawing of the same type of machine from Medhurst's Pattern book.
