Star Brush Company

Lowry refers to the famous brush making company, which was based in Eden Grove, Holloway, London in the 1920s, in his novel Ultramarine when Dana is cleaning floor of the messroom on board the Oedipus Tyrannus: "He then gets his scrubber - Star Brush Company - and his wad ...... and goes down upon his knees under the messroom table." (Pg. 50) - a task probably reflecting Lowry's time on the Pyrrhus.
