The 1921 Patent Railway Padlock|
Case Size: 83mm.
Enoch Jones & Sons
Founded in Victorian times by John Enoch Jones who specialised in Padlock manufacturer.
Many inventive features are found in Jones' padlocks as witnessed in a number of patents between 1895 and 1932.
Padlocks were produced for governments, corporates and utilities.
Clients included names such as the 'General Post Office' (GPO), 'London, Midland & Scottish Railway' (LMS) and 'Ferrocarril Central Argentina'(FCCA) the state owned railway company of Argentina.
In 1921 an improvement to the Linley railway padlock was patented (British Patent No. 192882-21) which suggests that the railway markets of South America was still an important part of their business.
Another Jones patent, 188588-22, feature is shown HERE.
