Pickle factory, Holbeck

Postby harrym1byt » Fri 25 May, 2018 10:28 am

In my family research, I have had a rather cryptic email from someone who might be a distant relative, mentioning a pickle factory - possibly in Holbeck, possibly somewhere near Domestic Street in possibly the 1950's. Sorry for all the 'possibly's', but does anyone know of such a business? A 1950's OS map shows nothing marked on it as a pickle factory.

That is brilliant, although i don't remember the Pickle Factory the picture of the Petrol Station does bring back memories. Once i did need a haircut and unfortunately strayed into that Barbers opposite. After telling him just how i wanted it i sat there and the end result was just " Short Back and Sides" I never went there again.
