For anybody interested in British designers ; posting a list from this book. Had to edit list as print on posted page was too small; so 3 enlarged images of full list.

Funny. I had heard exactly one name. But when I read Ernest Race, our old friend @ernest-rams came to my mind. Wherever he is.

@lexi So did I. He seemed to be one of the most enthusiastic and exited posters in the later days of the old forum. That’s why I was a little surprised that he disappeared without further notice.

Two things stand out to me.

1. Until around 5 years ago, as a resident of Surbiton I probably need to buy some furniture by Peter Hoyte. My excitement tempered only by the fact I spotted a very reputable dealer here post a chair of his with made in 'Surbiton, Surrey' plaque only two weeks or so ago. But amazing to see the exact address.

2. Interesting to have a name to associate with Merrow Associates, again as well as an address. Despite knowing the place Merrow, I was not sure that's definitely where the furniture came from. But the address looks like you couldn't have fit another use of the word 'Merrow', so definitely in Merrow.

Thank you Lexi!
