BAYKO U.K. Trademark - #552,209

Well, this is the first...
...a copy of page 1200 of 'The Trade Marks Journal'...
...dated September, 12th, 1934.
As far as I can ascertain, there are no records in existence of any supporting literature, so this is, almost certainly, the earliest mention of BAYKO anywhere...
...in due course, I will visit Companies House to double check.

This small, classified advert sized mention of BAYKO was located at the bottom right hand corner of the image. [right]

The script, under the subheading of "Class 49", which relates to games and toys, is very short and to the point : -
"BAYKO"
"552,209. Toys and Games. CHARLES BIRD PLIMPTON, 39, Hamilton Road, Wallasey, Cheshire; Manufacturer.-27th June, 1934."
 
Interestingly, that meant the C.B. Plimpton "owned" the trademark personally, not the Plimpton Engineering Company...
...presumably this would then have passed to his widow, Audrey, following his death on December 29th, 1948...
...it might be interesting to find out how, if at all, this affected the MECCANO takeover.
