I've found a Frederick W. Wodcke as an 18 yo in the 1939 National Registration database, living at 25 Boyton Road, Hornsey (not far from Muswell Hill), working as a shop assistant.

Could the newspaper report actually date from the late 1930s?

The ebay listing has 1909 for several listings of various cuttings from the same newspaper. I checked the magistrate and this seems to corroborate the date.

I found Sir Alfred Reynolds (1850-1931), Magistrate and Sheriff of London - Sitter in 4 portraits here all dated 1904.

He is standing in all four but no doubt that's correct English!  ;D

Great Mal. Only two pictures missing in WoT now. That page is a delight.

Searching through my junk box today for something else when to my amazement I found a furniture label similar to that shown in Reply # 1 however there are no ornaments on my one.



I was totally unaware I had this!  8)

There are other dissimilarities, e.g. the O's in LONDON. It seems the letters were punched in by hand (there are some slightly misalignments, like the N in SALMON) on the token, while the label was made in one go. Maybe the label served as an example or as inspiration for the token?

Found another lovely J Salmon & Son matchbox label that is now the centrepiece illustration on our WoT page

This also confirms 35 branches existed.
