    Visited with a bunch of Northeners I bumped into.

    Trankmas, I did text you!

    Mini history - SJ Dixon's have been paint manufacturers since 1854 but having left these premises they now, 2012, stand empty.

    This building, owned by S J Dixon & Son Limited, was erected in 1885 on Cleveland Road by a local firm of builders, Bradney & Co, as an extension to Forder & Co's extension to their 1880/2 factory. Bradney's workmen are said to have used the newly available electric light to extend their working day in order to complete the work.
