L.B. Holliday & Co. Ltd.

Description

Advertisement for L.B. Holliday & Co. Ltd. from the back cover of Huddersfield: The Official Handbook (1930).

The colours of the handbook's cover have faded badly over the decades, so the above is an attempt to digitally restore the advert to its former glory.

The columns in the background may be a hidden reference to the Huddersfield War Memorial in Greenhead Park. It is believed that a shortfall in the cost of building the memorial was met by a private donation from dye manufacturer Lionel Brook Holliday, founder of L.B. Holliday & Co. Ltd.[1]
