Bits and Bobs part 1

Over the next few days I will post some odds and sods that were sent to us by Werneth Low.
These are just the sort of things we are looking for.

Wonderful pictures. They must have employed a great many people. Sad that so many of our industries have died or gone abroad.

So, so sad. Will have to look elsewhere for my Wimbledon towel this year!

I think Christy's (owned by Wellspun) still do the Wimbledon towels - evrything is made in India now though and the sales office which was at Carrfield Mill is now in Cheadle Hulme.

Do they have a factory shop at Cheadle Hulme, Gerald?
