Colonel Frank Stewart Sandeman opened Manhattan Works, Dundee, c.1874.  As owner of these Works, Colonel Sandeman bought the Stanley Cotton Mill in 1876-1880, who had a weaving process for cotton driving belting which was improved by Sandeman.   The 'Stanley Solid Woven Cotton Belting' were a great success.  It became a Limited Company in 1900, & then the Sandeman Stanley Cotton Belting Co in 1919.  Although F Stewart Sandeman & Sons went into voluntary liquidation in 1932, the three Stanley Belting companies (the corporations of Chicago (1914-1944) & New York (1921-1934), (Canada) Ltd, Toronto (1927-1934) and the Sandeman Stanley Cotton Belting Co Ltd, London, (1924-1945), which had sales connections with South America) continued to trade variously.

Studdy drew a whole series of images based around a prehistoric man character by the name of "Stanley" that were issued as advertising postcards.  I have not found when these were first released, but I did find a reference to them being available from the Chicago branch of the firm in a magazine dated February 1919.

Sir (Alexander) Nairne Stewart Sandeman, 1st Baronet & son of Colonel Frank, was a Conservative Party politician in the United Kingdom.  He was elected at the 1923 general election as Member of Parliament for Middleton and Prestwich, and held the seat until his death in 1940.  In his campaign advertising, he used two Studdy Bonzo images in postcard adverts.

The Orosi Foothill Citrus Association of California, USA created a vast number of highly decorative and colourful fruit crate labels, dating back to the late 1800s.  This one for Fido brand lemons appeared in the 1930s, seemingly based on the 1920 Studdy dog.

Colonel Henry Milward was a fervent fly angler who decided to mix business with pleasure when he created Milward’s Fishing Tackle Company as part of his centuries-old needle-factory sometime in the early 1900s.  A dozen workers left needle- and syringe-making to become experts in hooks, flies, devons, spoons and split-cane rods.  This remarkable adventure lasted until 1965, when Milward died.  Milward was just one of many fishing tackle manufacturers located in Redditch, just south of Birmingham.
As Studdy was also a great angling enthusiast, it makes perfect sense that he drew an advert for this company.  It's even highly possible the two knew each other!

Dr. Thomas John Barnardo was born in Dublin, Ireland and began his work with homeless and destitute children in the East End of London, England in 1866.  His vision was that children deserved the best start in life.  By the time Thomas Barnardo died in 1905, the charity he founded ran 96 homes caring for more than 8,500 children.  His vision continues today through the work of four different charities around the globe.

Studdy was always glad to lend his name and contribute to charities, thus he created this lovely postcard for Barnardos in 1930.

The Health and Cleanliness Council used a previously published Bonzo postcard image to help with their campaign of "Where there's dirt, there's danger!" in the 1930s.
