Object statement
Thermocouple temperature gauge, metal/ glass/ paint, used at Farmer and Co/ Grace Bros Sydney, Ether Ltd, England, c 1950
Made by Ether Ltd at Birmingham, England.

The Mirrlees engine was probably contemporary with the McLaren, so the gauge probably dates from the 1950s.
Used at the Sydney city store of Farmer and Co, on the corner of George and Market Streets, which later became Grace Bros.

Owned originally by Farmer and Co, then Grace Bros, and finally Coles Myer Pty Ltd.
