A compact, fully automatic stop-cylinder machine - 'top feed' type with built-in high-pile endless-chain delivery system.  Manually operated impression lever lifted the cylinder clear of the forme, as the cylinder rotated (whether on or off impression). Normal pyramidal inking system included two inkers.
Unsure if Haddon's were the actual maker as they were agents for other well-known manufacturers including the American Cottrell-Babcock and the German 'Frontex' range of machines. Re-badging was a common practice at this time, probably due to the political turmoil in Europe.
Additional information most welcome.
