Edward Moore Dale advert from 1900

Shaft of a 'cut-throat' razor used by hairdresser Edward Moore Dale in the early years of the 20th century and engraved with his name. When the E M Dale business closed in about 1910, the razor was acquired by Dale's competitor a few doors away, E W Bridge, who combined hairdressing with a fancy-goods store.

We are indebted to David Baker, who owns this souvenir, for supplying us with the photo
