Reynolds Tube Company Catalog - 1920s vintage?
Many thanks to David Ross for the scans
The article The History of Reynolds Tubing (which used to be on the Reynolds USA
website, and which is archived here) says HM (high manganese) tubes debuted in 1924.
However Hilary Stone makes a convincing argument that Reynolds USA is wrong, and HM
was not announced for bicycles until 1931 (though it was developed earlier for aircraft).
Since this catalog doesn't mention HM tubes, it probably came out prior to 1931.
The previously mentioned article says "The Patent Butted Tube Company" changed its name to
"Reynolds Tube Company Ltd" in 1923. So that gives the earliest possible date for this catalog.
Kindly contact David or myself if you have anything to add.
