278558 Richard Wilson <yorkshireman@y...> 2024‑06‑21 Re: I have an English backsaw which I can find no info on
British Saws & Saw Makers from c1660. (Simon Barley) 


Contains... 

Armour, William James	London
112 Lillington Street, Pimlico 		1874-1876
47 Hindon Street, Pimlico 		1877-1881
68 Wilton Street			<1909>
Listed under saw makers for the above, although he was listed as a platemaker,
toolmaker and dealer until at least 1915; BPM3 shows marks indicating some sort
of relationship (perhaps no more than a purchaser) with John Moseley



No illustration of the mark is given.
John Moseley is described as ’the pre-eminent wooden platemaker in London
throughout the C19.
