_________________________ thanks to Maniac for this great photo Searching for the Missing Young
seen them marked for Wm. Mills & Son, Richardson, Lyon &
Coulson, Abbey & Imbrie, Edward vom Hofe, Weber, and Canadian merchants.
Has anybody seen the Young patterns 14a and 15a marked for F.E. Thomas?
very likely that Thomas Rods simply sold these reels in the Young box
shown below, but if you do run across a marked FE Thomas reel, please
let me know - thanks !

Does anybody know of a between-the-wars business connection between Young and Shakespeare or Ingliss (Canada)?
Or did Young just have a fondness for the Shakespeare box?
