  • Notes 
    • Martin Cath writes:

      I have the barometre that Daddy used to have at Peewit (although I don't remember it at 155) and it is enscribed as follows:

      Presented to
      H. CATH Esq.
      by his friends at
      ACCOUNTING & TABULATING CORPORATION OF GREAT BRITAIN LTD
      as a token of their esteem
      May 18th 1934

      He will have been 75 years old when this presentation was made. Did he work until he was that age? If he worked for that company most of his life, did they have an office in Geneva? I suppose that a company specialising in the production of mechanical adding machines might have Swiss connections, not quite clock making but at least similar. It opens up further channels for research. I don't think that Accounting & Tabulating Corporation of Great Britain Ltd are still in business but it may be possible to find out who took them over ( if that was what happenned) and therefore what became of them They might be forerunners of IBM.

      Our Grandfather, Horace, travelled for a Book firm. I can't remember the name, but very well known at the time. He went to France and Germany and must have met his wife on his travels - in fact it sounds as tho' he lived there for a while because they lost the first baby and our father (Horace Paul) was born up a mountain (sounds odd, but it's what we were told!) and Grandfather surprised the family when he turned up with a wife and child
