Blacking Factory

Recommended Posts


I’ve just been reading about the building of Broomhall , one thing caught my attention on Southbourne Road , seems that a Blacking Factory was built there c1860, the area was clean and the rich of the town were drawn to the area simply to escape the smoke and grime of the time. To find a blacking factory with a tall chimney must have been a shock. My search is for the owner of the factory and when it was closed.
