Anyone have any info on the reids factory around bidston docks? I think it was along the lines of the old tin box factory. Asking for a relative whose Dad worked there. Thanks for your help

Sorry this a bit late
Ther was a metalwork shop behind the garage on the st James roundabout
The entrance was in the area of the two blocks of houses at the top of Stanley road on the same side as the asda
If my memory is right the factory was called Creeds and I think they made bread and cake tins
Hope this helps
