A couple of early Aspindales

Post by AndyPop » Fri May 04, 2018 9:30 am

I know the history of Aspindales production can be patchy, but I have managed to get hold of 2 rods from the late Peter Aspindale's estate. One rod is inscribed built in 1933 with details on the tag, and the other described as the 1st hollow built match rod dated 25th Sept 1948. The mysteries and surprises continue!
