iron hand press

I have recently aquired a reasonably large albion type iron hand press. But I am unable to find out its age or any more about it. It has the names ‘Payne & Sons Otley Ltd. London. Photo attached. If anyone can help identify I wil be very grateful. Many thanks.

It is an Albion, Payne made them towards the end of the 19th and early 20th century. Their last order was for the government printing dept for Albions in 1940…!

PS is it dated or numbered?
