Ayres Line Marker 'The Cavendish'

An alternative style of line marker from the early 1900's using a rubber band to produce the line. Manufactured by F H Ayres who were  established in the 1860's and famous for the manufacture and supply of sports equipment.

A similar model badged for Gamage's shown above in their 1911 catalogue.

Note the handle was I believe added by the previous owner who restored the machine, is perhaps a bit oversized?
