The Newton Mill factory produced stationery and greetings cards and was originally founded in 1895 by Thomas Owen Jacobsen and Stanley Welch and as such initially traded as “Jacobsen and Welch”.  The factory closed in 1976 and as now been divided up and parts are very much still in use today.

I got the following comment in an email from David Hamiltion who now lives on Merseyside:
"By the way, I was reading the Newton Mill posting , and I can remember when we lived at Hallbottom St, I could see the Christmas Tree from our front window, this was a sure sign that Christmas wasn't far away!!."

Great memory there Dave.
