You may be able to help me.  This is what I am looking for and why:-

Any examples of the company’s products that still exist today so that they can be photographed & recorded & possibly added to this website.

I am also interested in acquiring or being loaned examples of the company’s literature, brochures, compliment slips, letterheads, receipts, payslips, letters, orders & any photograph relating to Garton & King.

I am similarly interested in listening to & maybe recording experiences & memories from those who worked in the company - showroom – draughtsmen – fitters – foundrymen – patternmakers – machine operators – cleaners – clerical staff etc.,  or being put in touch with any past employee.
