MISTERO No 1 :
Why a sewing machine with serial number 1.543.464 is badged O.QUITMANN 18 CITY ROAD ?
Was Oliver in partnership with his brother E. ?
What E. stand for ?
The J model, a transvere hybrid type , badged 18 City Road with the serial number 1.543.464 , could be one of the first machines imported from Germany by Oliver Quitmann. But why on the badge only Oliver is mentioned ?
The below Instructions for Working, originaly mentioned W. Pierssene at 24 - 25 Fore Street. Quitmann will ad his name and address.
We know that Pierssene start to sell from 24-25 Fore Street the Vickers sewing machines. Did Pierssene return all the leaflets ( and the sewing machines...) to F&R ??? Perhaps the leaflets where made in Germany and delivered to England!
