English-made Hybrid Revisted

Donald Kerr at University of Otago [New Zeeland], informed me of his institution’s Vandercook made by Pre Press Ltd. of London. His photos show a carriage nameplate stating that it is a “No.4”:https://vandercookpress.info/years35-53.html#4. However, the cabinet and feed board styling (and presumedly the inking system were it present) is that of a “215”:https://vandercookpress.info/years35-53.html#215. Interested readers may recall my February 04 entry “English-made Hybrid”:https://vandercookpress.info/vanderblog/?p=162 concerning another Pre Press-made Vandercook, which had a No.4 cabinet but a 215 feed board, and where the model name was left blank on the carriage name plate.
