Information from maker's grandson

Professor Jonathan Bowen, the maker's grandson, visited the MHS to see the bolometer on 17 January 2004. He confirmed that the writing on the attached label is that of his grandfather, E. J. Bowen, and also mentioned that the packaging and presentation of the object is typical of what in the family is known as 'grandadery'.
