Footnotes

  • This clock was purchased from the Leo Villa Collection auction 23/24 July 1992 at Neales of Nottingham as lot 853. In 2004 the auction purchaser sold the clock privately to the current vendor's father, by descent to the vendor.

    Lots 134 to 138 were collected for many years by the Late Christopher Jackson.
    Mr Jackson was the Managing Director of Metro Imaging, a photographic company based in Clerkenwell. He had a keen interest in the engineering, patriotism, drive and bravery of the 'Racing Campbells' and combined this with a love and knowledge of fine photography to compile this collection.
