This delightful suggestion is part of a brochure (probably produced in wartime) demonstrating the versatile uses of the Bratt Colbran Winch. Why does the Local Studies Library at Derbyshire Record Office have this item? Because Bratt Colbran became part of the Radiation Group Ltd, who produced stoves and grates, and who also acquired Park Foundry in Belper. I don’t know if the winch was ever produced in Belper, but the stove and hearth appliances certainly were.
