The company specialised in tiles for walls and fireplaces, operating in Ogden Road from the 1920s until the end of the 1950s. Also on the right is the Lichfield Street works of Sandilands & Co. who produced earthenware from the 1940s. The left hand side of Ogden Road is terraced houses at the top, built in the early 1900s.
