Joseph Hudson, a farm worker from Derbyshire moved to the city of Birmingham during the Industrial Revolution and trained as a toolmaker.  Amongst his early products were snuff boxes, corkscrews and .... whistles.  

 

The story of J Hudson & Co (Whistles) Ltd is a fascinating one for, over the next 135 years, under its trading name of Acme, it developed and patented over 40 different whistle designs to make the company a world leader.
