J Braddell & sons

This is to complement a recent pic on Belfast Daily Photo.

.. and to repeat something I said .. Joseph Braddell & Son Ltd. was founded in 1811 when Joseph Braddell and his son came to Belfast from County Donegal. They established a business for the manufacture and retail of general sports and fieldsports equipment, including guns, fishing tackle and golf clubs. The fieldsports section separated from the general sports in 1913 and has become an established part of Irish sporting circles.
