Thank you to Douglas Bryce for sending me this card with and aerial view of the Morrison & Gibb's factory at Tanfield, taken in 1937.

1937

"This card was sent by Morrison & Gibb to promote the extensions to their factory at Tanfield in their centenary year, 1937.  It seems to be part-photo / part-drawing.

The card was printed on only one side, and would have been sent to potential customers.

Here is the whole card.  The text starts 'UR'.  This should be 'OUR'.   The 'O' would have been printed in another colour."
