Cooper and Co


master brummie
This photograph was in a newspaper around 1958/1959. The text might be a bit small but it reads: "The new premises are fine---that's the verdict of two top men from Cooper and Co. (Birmingham) Ltd. Director Mr. Horace Walford (right) and works manager Mr. J. A. Miles inspect the factory which started operation three weeks ago. Says Mr. Walford: "For more than 50 years we have been a family concern, and that close-knit feeling still pervades the firm."". Any idea where they were located and what they did? Mr. Miles happened to be a Sunday School teacher in Hall Green.
