  1. Hi all - many thanks for ALL your contributions - its easy to get sidetracked into other areas but at least the postings confirm that they at least Sold AGAs and thank s Jenny for the images you posted. I would have responded sooner but I realise if there was somewher to click to be notified of any postings then I hadn't done so - there was me thinking no-one was interested !! Strange how you from your neck of the woods always manage to turn the subject to BOATS ! Down our way we have a choice of the Atlantic or the English Channel!! My brother has a Rayburn installed in his Narrow Boat which links in - sort of - as Rayburn and AGA are now one and the same. Thanks again Over and out. Richard H
  2. In the 1940s, so I am lead to believe, the business of Leo A Robinson, Bridge Stores, Oulton Broad covered a multitude of interests but my interest is in the Company , the premises and its involvement as Agents for the AGA Cooker. In 1941 (and possibly in preceeding years) the Company teamed up with another AGA Agency - H Warner (Kings Lynn) Ltd, 23 - 24 Market Street , Kings Lynn and occupied Stand 200 at the Royal Norfolk Show where they demonstrated the Model C AGA Cooker in a Caravan of all places - the advert in the Show Guide for 1941 actually shows a drawing of the Caravan and the text states "In the AGA Caravan you see Model C cooker actually burning." The sponsors were AGA Heat Ltd in co-operation with the authorised Service Distributors for the area (Robinson & H Warner.) I should like to source images of the Robinson premises in Oulton Broad in the early 1940s and all information about their time as an AGA Agent - this may not be the most appropriate site to post this query but coming from Devon and knowing very little about the Broads I had to start somewhere. My interest is reflected in the link here:- http://www.exeterfoundry.org.uk and visit the AGA Page for my family's busines of Garton & King Ltd, Exeter were AGA agents from about 1932 & the successors still are.
