History note May & Millar.

May & Millar, Iron Founders and Agricultural Implememt Makers, operated from premises that were opposite May Park on the north side of Dimboola Rd Horsham.
Samuel May and James Millar commenced business in 1874. Their partnership was dissolved in February 1893, and James Millar continued to run the business, still using the Trading Name of "May and Millar"

Spanners marked May & Millar or just Millar are hard to find. The Malleable spanner pictured below is a very good example - most often it is found with cracks and parts missing.
