This is really important to me - I am aware of Harbot and will be looking into their history during late spring (a work project which I will report on at a later date) They seem like a fairly primitive manufacturer, I imagine they relied on local trade with modest aspirations and achievements. I worked with people in my early days - coming up to 30 years ago - they worked in the industry forty years before me. How I regret not asking them about Harbots! but I suspect they would not have known of them. We discussed the old manufacturers and an old list was drafted, Harbot was not on the list (which I lost) but there were around 20 other small factories listed.
Whilst on the subject - Mersey Fireworks - any information?
Thanks. Nothing on Mersey I'm afraid.
