Reading simply “ERECTED BY JOHN LYSAGHT LTD, BRISTOL, 1928” these plaques are the birth certificate of the stand. Founded in 1857, the eponymous John Lysaght Ltd established the Netham Ironworks at St Phillip’s, Bristol before acquiring works in Wolverhampton, Newport, Scunthorpe and Australia. In 1920 Guest, Keen and Nettlefields (GKN) acquired the company but the John Lysaght Ltd name continued trading until the late 1960s. Although founded in Bristol the John Lysaght story stretched across the globe during Victorian and Edwardian times with work in Uganda, Argentina, Venezuela and The Philippines. In fact John Lysaght Ltd plaques can still be seen on Junction Lock Bridge (1925) by The Pump House pub and on the glorious Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus in Mumbai, India.
