    1892-07-13 - earliest (by now, or by Me) ads of PRIMUS brand - connected with Hjorth as"Generalagenter"
    publicated adress is not the same as here:
    [​IMG]
    in the beginning he built a distribution network, leaving the Stockholm district to himself.
    The process was as violent as a speeding snowball.
    It is worth paying attention to the differentiation of advertisements, some of them are based on official engravings owned by the company - only which company?

    An excellent archive assemblage Gieorgi:thumbup: Very valuable resource especially with the original publication details provided in most cases.

    But the superb sheet immediately above, marking the number of Primus stoves sold having reached 15,000, we can see that was taken from the journal 'Dagens Nyheter', but what date of publication?

    Från Klara Till Kosmopolis - B.A. Hjorth & Co - 40th Anniversary - 1929
    Frans Wilhelm Lindqvist - Agnegatan 10 - started the year of 1891 to produce the new paraffin-vaporizing stove
    J.V. Svenson in March 1, 1892 join to FWL and create Klara Norra Kyrkogata 17 -J.V. Svensons Fotogenköksfabrik, of product "should carry the name Primus"
    B.A. Hjorth join in May of 1892 as "generalagenter"
    ----------------------------------
    When "PRIMUS" was placed on tank...

    1892-07-13 - earliest (by now, or by Me) ads and pictures of PRIMUS stove - connected with Hjorth as"Generalagenter"
    [​IMG]

    new official picture (second) of stove this was used 1893-10-14

    [​IMG]

    "3" official pictures - and first "Primus" on tank publicated 1893-11-10
    [​IMG]

    in small version of ads was: primus9406primus.jpg
    was in use 1894-06-23 maybe earlier
    ---------------------------------
    conclusions

    if picture of Primus on tank was at the end of 1893 - and meantime was two official pictures
    date of "3" - on tank imo was closer date of publication - mean in 1893 year

    It doesn't. It says apparatus, so you can rely on that they count anything they have produced.

    i'am not sure -
    1904 -Ofver 2000000 salda
    1904 - 1200000 apparatus
    1908 -2000000 apparatus,

    then thats mean till 1904 ->40 % of "salda" was not "apparatus"
