Edison Swan artefacts, Lydbrook

Terry wrote: " ... find enclosed photos of some recently rescued items from the area. The box is from the Swan Edison factory at the old cable works at Lydbrook. This would date from 1935 to 1966. It looks quite early and there were quite a few receipts from the 1940s in the box. Other interesting items are the 4 metal pay tokens dated 1917".

The H.W.S. on the 1917 tokens would refer to the builder and owner of the Cable Works - Harold W Smith.
