Hi Frances, silly me typed in exactly what you put (including the ") so I tried it without the (") and it worked fine.
I had a visitor to my house, and by chance he worked at Midland Iron in the early 50's and has plenty of info about the company that he is going to pass on to me.

Regards, Wardy.

Researching into The Midland Iron Company Ltd that was on Midland Road, Rotherham.
I have some letters dated 1899 that are signed by A.B.Bayliss and Francis Davy.
Has anyone got any photos or information about Midland Iron.  ???

Yorkshire (West Riding) Resources & Offers / Link:West Yorkshire Pubs

Back in the "good old days" I sampled my first pint at the age of 16 in 1967 at The Falstaff where an elderly lady called Peggy served me.
I started work at 16 and finished at 6pm, then straight to The Falstaff as my bus home was then running from All Saint's Square.
The pub has now closed, as many have over the years, but I still remember Peggy when I walk past what is now a building society.
If you are interested in Rotherham Pubs, with photo's and licensee information, why not visit my website at where you might find a relation of yours had a pub.
