A scan of a Lachenal label, a project suggested months ago and done for us by spindizzy and tallship, is now on the Museum page, along with lots of other good stuff.

I don't know that it's a really good one Dave but I'm sure I have a file somewhere that's waiting for a lot of retouching. I'll email it to you if you fancy spending a good few hours with Photoshop cleaning it up.... :unsure:

Yes but it was so grainy and of such poor quality that it was beyond redemption I'm afraid. Some friends of mine are going to the Horniman Museum in the near future. I'll ask them if they can get any good shots.

I got to the Horniman myself in the end but the instruments we got to see close up were limited to eight and none were by Rock Chidley. I got quite a good shot of a George Jones label but there's every chance that nobody will be interested in it!

Hi Pete! did you see the t-shirt I got with your Lachenal label? and in that thread we worked on an old Wheatstone label too. I could process that George Jones label if you wish

No, but today I made this reproduction label which is pretty close but not good enough by far to be a forgery!
