I took this a week ago, and would have posted it sooner, but as I was working on it my news reader informed me that Jon (groundglass) had posted a new entry, and the colour scheme – particularly the shade of red – was so similar to this one that I thought I’d leave it for a few days.
As for this image: Holt Hosiery is just around the corner from where I work, but I don’t know anything about it so looked it up on Google. I didn’t find much, but did come across a part of Alice Urmston’s life history which indicates that the factory was well established by the 1930s. I doubt the sign in this picture is 70+ years old, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised if the door was – it was in rather a sorry state.
