BAYKO in IRELAND

I currently have three BAYKO documents from the Irish Market, and, although I have no direct evidence, I believe standard U.K. fliers were regularly used in Ireland, perhaps without prices : -

The inner pages of the 1950s Irish parts price list

The above document is the standard UK price list of the same date, but with local prices. The prices are different to UK prices, presumably due to different taxes and currency values.
The non-alphabetical order of the listed parts suggests this document dates between 1952 and 1956. The 'deliberately vague' address format further narrows this down to the period bracketing the factory's change of address in September, 1955.
There is no mention in this document of an importer which suggests Plimpton supplied Ireland direct from Liverpool, at least at this time.  To date, this is the only specifically Irish document, from the Plimpton era, that I am aware of.
One final point - this document carries the reference code "Ref. 23", whereas the U.K. equivalent is coded "Ref. 25". This is the only example I know of where the U.K. and export documents have different codes...

The above document is the standard double-sided U.K. flier of the same date, modified for the Irish market.
The only modifications that I have noticed relate to the removal of the set price information, and, of course, the addition of "Eire", hidden away in the document reference data in the top right hand corner.

The above document is the standard UK catalogue of the same date, modified for the Irish market. The pull-out price booklet [top right] is in £/s/d. The prices reflect local tax and import duty differences from the UK.

In common with most other companies, Plimpton had to protect their product and their markets as best they could...
