An abandoned food packing factory on the edge of the Vauxhall area of Liverpool. Thomas and Jones (TEJAY) Ltd seems to have operated from 1924 - 2010, with the latest literature inside dating from the mid 80’s. Not a great deal to see in this one - most of the machinery had gone leaving just fixings and pulleys in the ceilings of some rooms. Visited with junior. Pictures go from the basement up.

Not the most hygienic of food places.

View south from the roof showing the radio city tower (aka ‘de magic mushroom’), and in the middle the sandstone spire of the municipal buildings on Dale St.

There was a considerable amount of drug paraphernalia in this place which was surprising since access is currently far too inconvenient for your average questing junky. Looking around, drug action now seems to have shifted to a shed over the road (sorry about the focus in the last shot).

I worked there in the 1980s. There wasn't any machinery just a manual hoist. The working conditions were pretty grim even in the office.

Interesting - was this just a redistribution/repackaging place then?
I imagine the building will be flattened fairly soon like much of the rest of that neighbourhood.

The company supplied catering size tinned meats and dried fruits to hospitals in the NW and N Wales. Just a supply warehouse and another industry that thatcher succeeded in closing down by cutting out the middle man.
