I have a copy of his catalogue, dated 1915. In it he claims that "the
Fountain Head Foundry covers over an acre of ground and is the largest
Bell Foundry in Europe".

There is a view of the pattern room, a general view of the machine and
erecting shop and 3 views of the foundry. No photo of the man himself,

If this is of general interest I can try to scan them and upload to
the website, or just reply direct to John Maloney.
