Hi Pete,

Get a picture of the chimney GB trade mark! Wouldn't that be a fitting image to add to the CR website?

Hello All I have Just spent the morning down at the GB factory with Jeremy Burgess , son of Gerry (GB). They now make conference furniture and are one of the biggest manufacturers in Europe. Each of their products still carrys the GB roundel. Jerery confesses to know nothing about the past history of the company, so I have been helping him to build up some info plus a small collection of their range , starting with the Hidumimiun. One of the older factories still stands next to the present unit , which is now being used by Airtex who make parts for MG cars. There is still the GB trade mark on the chimney. I have been able to secure the last remaining stocks of the Stainless steel toe clips which I can supply for $25 plus post Also there are some black hoods for Super hood levers , they are lacking the adjuster slot which will have to be cut in. $20 plus post. This is the last lot and there won't be any more!!!! unless of course you want a GB chair or table Regards Pete Paine in Gloomy Watford
