A Cut-out relay and fuses, small parts in mechanical computing machinery

This page contains a photograph which is one of several belonging to the photo gallery pages which are part of several pages relating to the invention of the world's first automatic totalizator in 1913 and Automatic Totalisators, the company founded to develop, manufacture and export these systems.
This photograph is of a Miniature Circuit Breaker or Cutout Relay - 4 contact type. The text on the back of this photograph reads: Used in two places 1) As a guard on each group of T.I.M.s 2) As a cutout in the event of failure of drive etc on an adding unit. This type of cutout relay can easily be seen in use in the previous photograph in the Photo Gallery. I find it interesting that the company name Totalisators Ltd is printed on the paper with amperage identification inside the glass casing of the fuses on the right hand side of this photograph. Two of the fuses are oriented in the fuse holder in a fashion that makes the name clearly readable. Totalisators Ltd. was the UK subsidiary of Automatic Totalisators Ltd.
There is no photographer's stamp on this photograph.
