William Parkhurst, located in Bristol, England circa 1920. made sidexside shotguns, but no details on file..............
Riverside shotguns were made by Stevens. I'm not sure when they started and stopped using this name, but the Riverside hammergun should be the Model 215 which was produced from 1913-1932.

The Hercules brand name was used by Montgomery Ward on guns made by Iver Johnson and J. Stevens.
There is not a lot of information available on these shotguns. They were made in the early 1900's and in excellent condition can sell for $5000 or more.
The case is fitted for the BSS line of double barrel shotguns made by Browning. It will fit other double guns as well.

If there are foreigh proof marks on the gun then it was probably made in Russia.
