That'll be because they didn't diversify into dry-cleaning and cobbling and key-cutting! :cursed:

Funnily(?) enough, it was the Grim Reaper in both cases with no-one able to take on the repairing.

Yes my local guy has gone although at least he managed to retire and have a few years first!

I will have to get up into the loft I am sure I have an Ingersoll pocket watch in a box somewhere

My first proper watch was an Ingersoll pocket watch and I wish I still had it, plus the original package and paperwork which gives your watch added loveliness, dear Roger.  I see that your watch was originally purchased in 1966 which, funnily enough, was about the same time as I bought mine (acquired 1966/67). I would love to know how much I had to pay when I got mine, brand new, in the mid-sixties.:)
