Go Up Go Down

I found 2 wedges side by side about 5 inches down. They were both marked Joe Smith & Sons, Oldbury England. I cannot find any reference on line to this company. Does any one have any info on this particular company or can give me a lead as to where to go next. They were in the same area as an old axe head which has writing on it but I cannot make it out. Thanks.

Go Up Go Down

Despite the similarity in names, I don't think the Joseph Smith & Sons razors is the route to take, for two reasons: 1) that company is located in Sheffield  and 2) while possible, the two types of product don't seem like they would go together well.

Personally, having struck out on the internet, I'd try to find someone knowledgeable with the history of manufacturing in Oldbury, either someone at the City Hall, library, or possibly at Bristnall Hall Technology College
(Bristnall Hall Lane, Oldbury, West Midlands, B68 9PA, England)

This link may help you find some one in Oldbury who can help you.
