L W Hunt or Doc Hunt had a workshop in Archer Street, Soho, London until the 1970s and they sold, rented, repaired and built just about anything percussion wise. Big barn of a place stuffed with drums. There is a reference here http://www.eddieryancustomdrums.co.uk/ to Eddie Ryan renting space there in 1971. These drums are probably 40s or 1950s made to special order.
