    We came across this after some old dears on a different site pointed us towards it.
    Empty but some nice art work.

    History -
    The works on Shepherd Street were founded by William Ridgeway in the 1930s. William Ridgeway merged first of all with Record Tools in 1974. Record were another Sheffield company who were renowned for the quality of their vices and industrial clamps. Following the merger with Record Ridgway Tools Ltd and was made up off 14 UK Companies with 5 overseas companies. The remaining packaging in the works refers to Record Marple which was a brand formed with the merger of the Record Ridgeway and Marple companies (which was part-owned by Record and and Ridgeway respectively before their merger). Marple made various woodworking tools. Record Ridgway was taken over by the Swedish hardware manafacturer AB Bahco in 1982. Although a management buyout led to the company reverting to British ownership in 1985 the company struggled financially and following administration was acquired by U.S. based Irwin Tools in 1998 who've moved production to China in recent years.
