Comments:
This bookmark does not have a manufacturers credit.

However, I am very grateful to the Leek Library, who have a excellent internet web site.
They have kindly given me permission to reference this advertising literature.
From this, you will see that the event immortalised on this bookmark coincided with a visit by the Royals to the Brough, Nicholson & Hall mills on the same day.
It is a more than fair assumption therefore that it was BN&H who also made this bookmark.
