This was our family's Great-Grandfather's factory, so finding this invoice was a thrill. Benjamin Frederick Wilcock was my husband's great-grandfather, and family lore states he once had a stall in Leeds Market next to Marks of Marks & Spencer. Benjamin had no sons, so we assume he was one of the sons and gained the business through his father, William. Great-grandson Irwin Shires now lives in Ohio, USA.
