Good afternoon from Glasgow! I am Curator of Transport & Technology at the Museum of Transport in the city - we have a wonderful collection of over 700 ship models as part of our collection. I am currently researching ship model makers in preparation for a new catalogue and the firm Kelso & Co is one of those I am interested in. There are no extant company records I can find, so I'm tracking down individual items and seeing if the holders have any relevant information - any additional info on Reg. No: ST 026652? Many thanks!
