Redferns Rubberworks was established in 1902. In 1914 it started the Manufacture of rubber goods. The specialities included mechanical rubber goods, cycle tyres, golf balls, rubber heels, small moulded rubber goods. 1937 saw them become rubber and ebonite manufacturers. Ebonite (a brand name) is vulcanised rubber. Its name comes from its intended use as an artificial substitute for ebony wood. Redferns is to the left of the above photo.
