More Crowden & Keeves’ Hardware
More magnificent hardware from the 1930 Crowden & Keeves catalogue in the possession of Richard Ince proprietor of James Ince & Sons, Britain’s oldest umbrella manufacturers, which Richard tells me has been knocking around his factory for as long as he could remember. Operating from premises in Calvert Avenue and Boundary St, Crowden & Keeves were one of the last great hardware suppliers in the East End, yet the quality of their products was such that items may still be discovered in use around the neighbourhood today.
