Notes

Nothing further is known about this business at present, but it seems likely that it used residual stock from E.G. Wood of London. Some of the telegraphic code letters for slide sets in their 'War list' catalogue correspond to those in the 1913 E.G. Wood catalogue.

The connection of the two Rookes to the business is known from a catalogue in the Kent Museum of the Moving Image; one explanation would be that these people purchased the stock of E.G. Wood after the death of its last owner Fred Horsey in 1933.
