The Kings Road, in the heart of Chelsea in London, is on the list of my top 10 days out. It’s also home to the iconic Chelsea Town Hall , a favourite venue for the Selvedge Fairs.
The Fox Archive from Fox Brothers & Co Ltd
This note in the archive is a document detailing the materials supplied by Fox Brothers during WW1 (1914-1918). A scan of the original document detailing the order is available for you to view on this page and shows that Fox Brothers supplied a total of over 8,000 miles of cloth to the British and Allied governments, using 10,000 tons or 900 trucks of wool…… I gasp to think of what it took to produce this amount of cloth – noisy machines and the huge workforce of women doing war work.
