General Catalogue No. 8 was published in January 1930, and was 108 pages. I don't know how much later catalogue No.9 was published, but at 56 pages, it would suggest that the company had restructured their manufacturing, whether due to the depression, or the outbreak of World War Two, depending how long they generally went between releasing their new catalogues - either way this catalogue should be a bit later than 1930.

Kind Regards, Kevin
