I certainly remember the smell coming from the place but I can't say I ever liked it. Glad I didn't have to work there.

I hate that smell. Probably because I'm allergic to peanuts.

Just to broaden this out a bit. There was a peanut factory in Grosvenor road New Brighton. A crisp "factory" in Union street Egremont, a pickle "factory" in Rock Ferry. Road name escapes me but turn right off New Chester road where the Abbotsford was/is?

Us oldies remember the crisps with the little bag of salt. No other flavours then plus you thought it was great when there was more than one bag of salt put in by mistake. You never actually realised you probably got less crisps because of it.

Was that the same one I think was called Happy Valley products or such and used to be on the corner of Duke street and Old Bidston rd.

Iremember the crisp factory in Union St, we used to go round to the side door when we were kid and get a bag of bits for 1/2d or a 1d, They tasted great(well it was in the late fifties)!
Does anyone know what make they where?

Yes, called skid row - people go in and nutters come out a few scoops later.

Just to add another angle, I recall it as being Sun Valley, but near, the now demolished Leta Street. There was also some kind of toy factory there too I think.

We still have a 'pop man' who visits weekly. I think the pop is a 'diversion' tho as he also sells fags, backy and Adult Entertainment wink raftl
