Notes: Time Recorders like this one would have been used to record the times workers came in and out of their place of work. The National Time Recorder Co. Ltd (incorporated in 1917, company number 146424, though possibly founded around 10 years earlier in 1907) was one of the two largest UK manufacturers of time recorders in the UK. The head office and factory was originally based in Blackfriars London, and moved to the Lagoon Works in St Mary Cray (Orpington) Kent in 1951, on the site of the Blue Lagoon swimming pool which had been damaged during the war. Other branches were established in London, Birmingham, Bristol, Dublin, Glasgow, Leeds, Manchester, Newcastle-upon-Tyne and Sheffield. .
