The Burden Bros business was first established in 1888 by the father of William and Albert Burden. In 1895 William Burden is listed in Kelly’s directory at 101 Fisherton Street Salisbury. By 1898 the two brothers had showrooms at the same address and a factory in Wilton Road. The Wilton Road factory was seriously damaged by a fire in 1899 and they moved to Tolgate Road. This factory also suffered a serious fire in 1909 but by that time they were no longer making Turret clocks and had changed to the Scout Motor Car Company. This clock being made in 1897 places it in an important part of this companies short history.
