Hello Brian, I'm a researcher and writer, and must say you have an excellent, well designed web-site that is really impressive. I was searching for old Tootal advertisements -and 'bingo' there it was - brilliant!
I will contact you separately. Kind regards John Dann

Thanks for the comment Neil. Not given up, hope to re-write and continue updating as I have loads of material. The only thing I'm lacking at the moment is time! ;)

Hello. I am desperate to find an old Rozalex advertisement featuring my father. He was photographed in front of some machine tools & was paid three guineas by the photographer, not realising until he saw the ad in a newspaper, that the photograph had been used by the company. Rozalex have been doing their best to find it, with no luck so far. The ad was featured in newspapers and Engineering magazines between 1965 and 1975. It's Dad's 78th birthday on Christmas Day & we would love to give him a copy. Can you (or anyone else reading this) help in any way? Thank you.

My Grandmother was born in Kearsley in 1895 and her father Thomas Latham and her husband grandpop were coal miners as well as many of her Whitley family where miners too. Loved all the pictures but really loved the coal miner's photos it showed how hard their work was. I thought how old some of the men were but then I thought it was there work that made them look so old as many coal miners did not live a long life. I would love to hang the photo of the coal miner pushing the wagon full of coal today on my wall with a quote saying don't wind about your job, look what grandfather did.

Fscinating site, congratulations. I would contest your description of "Roundheads" though. Both sides in the Civil War wore their hair as the fancy took them - see portraits of Cromwell and Ireton for example

I've really enjoyed looking at your site.
I'm currently researching pictures on behalf of Baracuta, who are putting together their company history. I've seen one of their early adverts on your website, and I was wondering if you have any more. I would be very grateful if you could let me know.
Many thanks and best,
Emma O'Neill

I found this sight looking for any information on Bertola sherry (family connections) and what happened to it. Still need more info.
