Someone's listed a nice looking mid-50's RA Blackwell on eBay. Not a maker I'm familiar with and there almost zero only information online. The shop was at 419 Hackney Road, E2. Which is local enough to me to get me interested. Anyone able to provide any insight? ..Sadly the sight is now a new build hotel.

Nothing particularly uber special, I'm pretty sure another one was on Hilary Stone's website a while ago. - very likely a frame built elsewhere and badged by the shop like many others were in London back in the day.

I have one that is uber special and indeed it was bought from Hilary. They were a shop but there is little info to be had about who built the frames they sold under their own name. Gillott has been suggested as a possible source for mine by someone with a similar.
