The name of the firm is actually HARRINGTON. They traded as Harrington,
Latham & Co and gave their address as The Butts, Coventry. The firm
exhibited at the British and Colonial Exhibition, Manchester in October,
1904. The jury on musical instruments awarded the firm a 'gold medal'.
Prices of a "peal" of bells ranged from £85 to £250. The illustration of a
set of tubular bells as supplied to St Alban's Church, Copenhagen, appeared
in a number of publications at the time.
