You lookin' at me?.... Back to the late 70s... our Ridgeback guarding a white cloth she just "appropriated"....
Very loyal and extremely strong, she distrusted strangers. And if a burglar had perchance managed to enter the house, they wouldn't have been allowed to leave.... he he!

Early 20thC Swiss Record pocket watch via H Samuel, Manchester under their trademark 'Everite'
English watchmaking was to suffer greatly through the early 1900s, as both Swiss and indeed American factory based watch manufacturing began to stifle the traditionally conservative UK methods. 
Many well-established English companies, like H Samuel, were forced to either close completely or import Swiss watches and market them themselves under their own banner.
H Samuel was in fact Harriet Samuel, who took over her late fathers' renowned Liverpool based clock-making business in the early 1860s. Harriet clearly possessed great drive, and not a little business acumen, since she proceeded to move the entire enterprise to Manchester. There she set up a successful mail order venture which soon developed into a thriving and prosperous business.
Much has changed since those days...but the name and retail business survives on todays' high street.
