FOOTNOTES:
George Betjeman & Sons were perhaps the largest fancy goods manufacturers in the world at the end of the 19th and start of the 20th centuries. Supplying luxury goods to traders such as Asprey, it is stated (The Stationery Trades Journal, 31st January 1894) "that Betjeman's is one of the few firms possessing the necessary machinery for putting a log of wood in at one end of the factory and turning it out as a highly-finished dressing case at the other, every portion of it being manufactured by them."

Their large works in Pentonville Road is listed as making a bewildering array of objects, often desk and dressing table accessories. The founder of the company, George Betjeman, (great-grandfather of the poet, Sir John Betjeman) invented the tantalus spirit stand, as well as many other patented devices.
