I recall visiting this factory as a small child with my Grand Parents Jack & Evelyn Franks. They ran the Scunthorpe shop for Stankler.

I carried out some building work at Sim Stanklers home.The property was a detachted bungalow. Part of the roof was sheet copper because his wife wanted a green roof. My experience of this man can be put in two words, "A gentleman"
