There's a glorious L& J Catalogue at Blaise Castle House Museum, Bristol. Bells occupy only one section, but that has headers and footers advertising such wares as: Improved closet Regulators; Sheet Zinc;Californian Dwarf Pumps;Black Tin and Argand Burners. The final sheet of my photocopy shows a very solid-looking garden fork, so presumably they made garden tools too.
