'AURIGA'


.....Continuing down Vyse-street, passing many members of the trade to whom we should like to refer, we arrive at Hylton-street, or what might more properly be called Hylton-crescent. Here at Nos. 48 and 50 are the factories of Mr. T. Walter Jones, of "Castle" link fame. The action of this link is so simple and safe, and it has secured such an unparalleled success, that scarcely a word need be said upon these points. If we took a journey–and journey it is–from the warehouses in the spacious yard, where the raw shell and other materials are received, into the packingrooms, we might be tempted to think that every man in the world was using the "Castle" link. Recently we certainly enjoyed this tour very much, and the various machines in operation upon this simple article forcibly bring to mind the machinery of the modern watch manufacturers. There were upwards of a hundred hands employed upon producing these famous cuff-fasteners, and the perfection of the sanitary arrangements of the factory was an absolute marvel; every bit of dust is drawn away as it is made, and the whole place is more like a drawing-room than a factory. These links and studs are made in a variety of materials, all kinds of shell, plated, silver, agate, blood-stone, in fact, in about 3,000 different patterns.
