Kettle & Son, Door Plate

A cast iron door plate marked Kettle & Son who may well be George Kettle Senior and George Kettle Junior. George Senior was born on the Elton estate in 1843 and, along with his son, worked as an engine fitter on the railways in the late 1800s but by the early 1900s the family had moved to School Place off Albert Place where George Senior was operating as an “iron planer”.
