Vanished tool makes: Long wrenches & sockets

Below, a set of "Long" wrenches I picked up recently.

Reverse side:

Note that the number given to each wrench increases as the size of the wrench declines.  

For some curious reason, sometimes the name is put in quotation marks, as on the wrench and socket below:

Probably American.  Several openings are in 32nds of an inch, so probably pre-war.  I can find absolutely no reference on the web to Long as a tool brand.   However, a google search yields lots of sites selling really long wrenches.
