Lost Industries

During my research of the Mirfield Coronation Souvenir (1953) and the Mirfield Grammar School Magazines (1954-1962) I came across several advertisements placed by local industries. Some of these are still with us today but a great number (especially the mills) have long since disappeared. I present some of them here to prompt the memories of older visitors and also to hightlight those that have successfully survived.
