jack taylor made everything in house, so yes, norman did the brazing (most likely - during the 50s when they had a lot of apprentices, someone else might have, or early on, before theyd split things up into norman - brazing/jack - paint/ken - build, all three brothers did all of the jobs)

this isnt the littlest taylor, though - there was the 12" wheel Bambino, the 16" wheel Junior Racing (which this bike is), the 24" wheel Junior and the 26" wheel Junior Sports...
