Colin Pullinger (1814-94): An extraordinary Victorian business man, Mr Pullinger advertised himself as undertaker, wooden pump maker, repairer of umbrellas, letter writer and clerk to the Selsey Sparrow Club.

He was famed for making more than two million 'humane and perpetual' mousetraps, which were exhibited at international exhibitions in London and Philadelphia.

The plaque is to go on the site of what he called his 'Inventive Factory', which is today occupied by the offices of Selsey Town Council in the High Street.

Thanks for the info PPuff. This picture was indeed taken in Selsey High Street yesterday. Selsey is a seaside village in West Sussex which is the next county to us.

"humane and perpetual"... the mind boggles in spite of itself.
