A quick trip to London in 1956….

So it’s 1956 and you’re in London’s West End, looking to purchase a top-end sidelock double barrel shotgun. Here’s a quick look at how it would go. Check out the try gun used for the fitting, as well as the tools behind the stocker’s vise. I love the stern looks on everyone’s face. Very serious work.

BTW: I think this is Wilkes’s old shop, or maybe Watson’s. Does anyone know for sure?
