Button description
Uniforms probably not worn

Comment A single surviving photograph taken in the early days of the company (see link), raises the possibility that staff may have been issued with uniform jackets; the photograph is however far from conclusive in this regard, and overall, given the fact that marked buttons are unknown, it seems more likely that the jackets were informal.
