LINES BROS, ORMSIDE STREET.

This is an interesting company, in fact a Worldwide company which I had never heard of, let alone of it being in Bermondsey, until I came across the picture below. Lines Bros a new company was registered on 1st May 1919 at Hatcham Works, Ormside Street, Old Kent Road, this was named the Triangtois Works. This was opened by some of the family who originally work for G & J Lines who on their return from the war, and after disagreements over how best to manage G&J Lines set up a new enterprise Lines Bros (1919-1972) in Bermondsey, along the same lines (no pun intended), tricycle horses, stool horses, pole horses, horse and carts and other large wooden toys. They soon gained customers such as London department store Harrods and Harvey Greenacre & Co. Ltd of Durban, South Africa.
Their horses are marked Triang or Triangtois and were made in the traditional manner, not only in their large British factories but also in their Australian and Canadian subsidiaries. They did still work closely with G&J Lines and I believe they came together after 1931 but not too sure of this.
