Item Description

1910's Victorian Metal Frame Warehouse Pigeon Hole Rack

1910's Victorian Metal Frame Warehouse Racking . A few weeks ago we heard about a derelict brickworks outside Hull that was being cleared. The works had been producing bricks for over two hundred years although it sadly stopped production in the 1970's. The yard was left untouched for over 50 years and fell into a pretty grim state. Fortunately the original turn of the century maintenance shed had been sealed up and was untouched. The shed housed an extraordinary batch of industrial pigeon hole storage units that were used to house the spare parts for the steam engine that powered the site. This is one of the few metal racks that we salvaged, a heavy eight steel frame with six original numbered wooden pigeon hole racks that slot into place, We have steam cleaned and jet washed the shelves so that they are clean and practical to use but retain their original scars and patina. The last of our Victorian industrial heritage. External shelf dimensions as a guide are Top 13.5cm high x 20.5cm length, 109cm wide. Bottom 16cm high x 40cm length, 109cm wide. Shelves are removable, the steel frame is heavy and robust. Pigeon hole dividers are as shown and are fixed and not removeable.
