This is an unusual view of some small factories in Burbury Street and affords a glimpse of how industrial parts of the street were back in the day. Of course, the locality was dominated by the Lucas factory years ago. A plate shows that the registered office of The Reliance Pattern Making Company was based here, along with the E. T .P. Co. Ltd., Press Toolmakers and Engineers. Although faded, the painted sign on the wall above the Ford saloon car appears to have the name W. E. Cramp and Sons. The plate from which this image is produced is marked up Burbury Street but it could be in another locale close by.
