In this blog entry I would like to introduce you to a spring door centre supplied by James Hill & Co, London (Iron mongers). It is very similar to the Avon as wrote about in an earlier blog entry. There are minor differences between the two but these are so neglible this may even be an early version of the Avon.
Above is an 1898 advert for James Hill & Co, they were also manufacturers of lace-making machinery with premises in Nottingham.
As there is so little information out there with regard to door closers, especially vintage and antique model floor springs, I thought I would start this blog.
