Default Parkers in "Trapshooting - Points for Novice and Expert"

By Hercules Powder Co., 1914. I do not know who contributed the text. The wonderful illustrations were by Harry S. Watson (British, 1871-1936)

2nd on right possibly Les German



Capt. A.W. Money? Son Noel also used a Parker

Drew, the people in all the illustrations seem to be involved in non competitive shooting activities except for the one picture with a scoreboard shown. One picture in one of the later pages clearly shows a Parker, very detailed. This is a Hercules booklet that I have never seen.

Another scoreboard and judge on the chair in the background?



I agree Bill; remarkable detail! Watson (not "Hy" Watson) knew trapshooting and Parkers

Several Parkers but none of the ladies have the large feather

Drew, I agree on Les German.

Going a little further, man at far left bears a strong resemblance to Heikes, and his gun also looks to have a Heikes hand protector. Man at far right shows posture and slouch characteristics much like Gilbert, and man at middle with his hand to his mouth might be Elliott?...

Best, Chris

I think you are correct about Gilbert Chris. This is a 1914 image, and Gilbert was using a 32" barrel Parker; Heikes then a Marlin pump



1915



Elliott's last competition was in 1911

Sporting Life Jan 13, 1912
Another veteran of the shooting game has passed out of the professional ranks. He is James A.R. Elliott, of the Winchester Repeating Arms Company, one of the greatest trap shooters who ever lived. Elliott was connected with that company for 19 years, and had a wonderful following in the shooting world, particularly in New York State, which has been his territory in recent years. In advising his friends of the severance of his connection with the Winchester Company the veteran says that in his long service his relations with the members of the company were ideal.

He continued to travel promoting his “Elliott Ear Drum Protector” thereafter

Default Hercules Booklet

Yes, great illustrations and the Booklet from 1914... Hercules also used the cover image for an Infallible die-cut poster...

In 1912 under the Sherman Antitrust Act, Laflin & Rand was dissolved and DuPont was split into DuPont Powder Co. (which retained DuPont Bulk, Ballistite, Empire and “Schultze” and was later DuPont American Industries), Hercules Powder Co. (which retained “Infallible” and “E.C.”) and Atlas Powder Co.

If this is Noel, he sure looks a lot like his old man --
