1881 Advertisement: 'The very old established Business known as Scotland Bank Iron Works, Warrington (Proprietor, Mr. Roger Hind, trading as Richard Kitchen), famous for its weighing machines and cranes, has recently, and owing to temporary and exceptional difficulties, gone into liquidation, and it is proposed to constitute a partnership or company, to purchase and continue it, if arrangements can be made with the creditors as to price. The works comprise a freehold property of large area (nearly a statute acre in extent), in the heart of Warrington, and the buildings and plant are all of the best and strongest description, and excellent condition. The concern is now in going order, with about 70 working hands. Persons desirous of participating in the purchase are invited to communicate at once with Messrs. Robert Davies, Sharp, and Kirkconnel, solicitors, Warrington ; or Joseph Davies, Voisey and Davies, chartered accountants, Warrington.—l9th July, 1881.'
