1912b Brewery

In their 14th December issue, the ‘Reading Standard’ published a special supplement on one of Reading’s biggest employers of the time, H&G Simonds Ltd then employed some 500 people.

In our archives there survives only a badly damaged copy, so I would very much like to hear from anybody who can improve on this please.

There is a transcription of the report that they published, HERE.

This marked up copy of an Ordnance Survey map 1912 edition shows how much the site had expanded already since the area shown on the deeds of 1837.
