T Robinson & Sons
The factory of T Robinson & Sons in Gordon Street

Mr. Thomas Robinson, Mr. S. Robinson, Mr. F. Robinson

The business was established in 1908, and when they outgrew the old premises, Messrs. Robinson & Sons bought a large and convenient factory farther afield. Here they specialise in Best and Medium Youths’ and Boys’ footwear and produce large quantities of these goods. They are organised for these lines which they prepare to the satisfaction of a large number of customers. In these times, however, they have, in a patriotic spirit, undertaken Footwear for the British and Russian Governments. Private Ernest Robinson, son of Mr. T. Robinson, is serving his Country with the Royal Fusiliers.
