Artist's Description

In the United Kingdom the firm of Barnard, Bishop & Barnard was established in Norwich to produce chain-link fencing by machine. The process was developed by Charles Barnard in 1844 based on cloth weaving machines (up until that time Norwich had a long history of cloth manufacture).1

Anchor Fence (established in 1898) bought the rights to the machine, and was the first US company to manufacture chain-link fencing in the United States. Anchor Fence, also holds the first US patent of chain-link. The machine was purchased from a man in 1845 from Belgium who originally invented the wire bending machine.Read more
