Padlacks (front)
Originally uploaded by a1scrapmetal.
These padlocks were made in Willenhall in the Midlands.
There is a wonderful museum in Willenhall of was a small back yard industry there.
I read in a book that until the canals, industry in the black country was mainly small scale objects that could be carried by cart easily...pen nibs,padlocks,oins and chains
