old cues history: makers

welcome to the first part of the new history section of oldcues. i want this page to become a useful resource for people researching their old cues, be those cues in a collection, or cues found in the loft or inherited from a relative. i don't claim to have compiled all the info myself, much of it is available in the public domain already, but where i've used another website or source for the info here i've given due credit in the articles.

i know the days of selflessly helping other people seem to have passed a long time ago (bar a few a few exceptions), but if anyone would like to help build on the size and scope of this section, please get in touch it's going to be a large undertaking and i'd be very greatful of any help, snippets of info, or full articles you may be able to provide.
