The History of T S Kaye & Sons, Tool Merchants, Hull
This book is about the T S Kaye & Sons, Hull, family tool business which was started in the 19th century by my great-grandfather and is no longer in existence. At one time there were many branches of Kayes, not only in Hull, but in Goole, Nottingham and Middlesbrough. It was a unique venture with its own imprint on the cutlery and tools, which are now world famous collectors' items in some niche markets. I feel that this history needs to be preserved and being the daughter of the last Kaye partner in business in the Hull Branch, Herbert Kaye, I am in a unique position to write this up, both from memory and my own research. I was pleased to hear that some people are still using the cutlery and tools in some parts of the world, as they have proved to be long lasting and durable. I hope readers will find this book interesting and entertaining.
