Vintage Canvas Brady Cartridge Bag.
A good quality small 'Brady' canvas cartridge bag by Brady, Halesowen. The bag is in good usable condition with brass fittings, leather trim and a cotton web adjustable shoulder strap. The bag has the cloth Brady 'Halesowen' label on the front and embossed to the rear '50, made in England'. The case holds 50 cartridges. A nice bag with no previous owners initials.

The first Brady brothers were John and Albert who made gun cases in Birmingham around 1887. John's son (Ernest) and Albert's son (Leonard) both worked in the business but when John died Ernest left the company, later going into business with his uncle Frank in 1928. The Brady's had premises in Shadwell Street in Birmingham's gun quarter but during the war they moved production into Ernest's home. Birmingham was repeatedly bombed during the war and Shadwell Street was to be demolished, forcing the Brady's to relocate. In 1946 Ernest started up in business again in Halesowen, part of the industrial Black Country.
