If you recall from Peter Miskiw's talk on the history of Astronomy in Bolton the name W. Banks cropped up. We have now been approached by someone who actually owns one of the telescopes he sold! The telescope is stamped/engraved W Banks and Co., Bolton.

It looks to be in much better condition than the two old refractors which we saw in the museum's store!
