The previous owners of a pub in Southport hadn’t left the keys for this Milners Thief Resisting door and the new owner required it to be put back in to service. We attended site and made new keys for the lock giving it a new lease of life.
The safe plaque reads: “Milners’ Patent Fire Resisting Thief Resisting Door No.2” and has the common “212” number which is the boiling point of water on the Farenheit scale. In smaller script it also reads “Improved for the government registry & courts 1857”.
The safe escutcheon reads: “Milner’s safe powderproof solid lock Liverpool & London”.
