Patent for hay and straw press, 1897

Post by vayardley »


I have recently found out that someone in my family tree took out a patent for "A New or Improved Press for Hay, Straw and the like" in 1896-97 and now have a full copy of this patent.

I'd be really interested in finding out whether this machine was ever produced commercially and I wonder whether anyone might be able to point me in the direction of places I could look to try to find this out?

I've attached a screencap of the first page of the patent in case it's of interest to anyone.

Thank you in advance and best wishes,

EDIT: Realised that I had the last two digits of the date backwards in the title - now amended.
