Thanks Kennett, I love the stories behind the signs and the cards. Interesting that they were for sale in a 'souvenir' shop; they normally only sell tat. You were either very fortunate, or you had some insider information lol.

Just to make thing a bit clearer. The change tray is not in doubt, as far as I know they have not been copied. The paperweight is printed in a photo-mechanical process rather than chromo which is why I was suspicious.

Nice thing Ross. He was tracked down in 1962 by a Bristol newspaper journalist living in Rhode Island USA.
