They don't make billheads like this any more!


This is a selection of billheads from invoices, accounts and letters received by Ely Garnett & Son between about 1890 and 1910. The artwork is quite

 special and some of the detail extraordinary. Note the rowing boat on the River Calder on Joseph Smithies' billhead.

Most of the firms are in Elland, Halifax or Huddersfield.

Some of the mills are enormous and the pictures on the billheads obviously are a way of showing

just how big and important the companies had become.
