Notes for Henry ADKINS

Retired to Ley Hill House, Merritt's Hill, Northfield, Birmingham UK. Phil Preston's research reveals Henry Adkins & Sons, Electro-Plated Wares, of 75 Bath Row, Birmingham. [8]

Contributed in 1866 two chapters to a book celebrating Birmingham businesses, one describing in considerable detail his company's manufacturing process for soap, and a second chapter describing their production of red lead (a paint). The soap mix was tested by the mixer by tasting it! [95]

The group picture must be very early, at the dawn of photography in the early 1860s. [95]
