You might recognise these names from a couple of ghost signs just off  Madras Street:
A clever bit of research by Phil Braithwaite reveals more about the company and its connection to McCormick reapers and binders, using page 259 of the 1902 Tourist Guide to Canterbury as a source.

If you are interested in ghost signs, see our earlier post on Pannells Bootmakers and check out Mark Spurgeon’s splendid site Preserve that documents such signage.

We have digitised a rather splendid 1902 publication Tourists’ guide to Canterbury.
