Hi
I had some dealings with the Harrisons in the early noughties.
Mainly with Ted Harrison Sr.(RIP)
One of the last vintage machines still in operation then was a very worn out Streamline Novelty Merchantman.
I can remember the whole case was coming apart, but all the castings were there apart from the boat bridge casting and the Deco feet.
Fortunately, i was able to get those castings 3 years later, attached is pic of how it looks now.
Ted Harrison Sr was a lovely man and he Gave me the merchantman FOC in return for restoring his mills Owl bandit and providing a cast iron stand which i felt was a good deal!
