I have written this mainly for myself, but if any members of the family are interested, they are welcome.
The first part is from what I was told by Ephraim Hindle, and written down in the 1930’s, with additions from old records. E & G. H. Ltd is hearsay and records up to 1928, after that at first hand. I have tried to stick to fact and omit opinion. Point of view depends on where you are standing. More space seems to have been taken with later years, but that was the part I saw best.
My father typed this up after he retired from the cotton trade in 1960, when E & G’s was put into liquidation and wound up by the shareholders. I scanned the typescript into Microsoft Word in 1998. This was to preserve the record in a more stable form (less vulnerable to the ravages of damp and vermin) ands also to add explanatory footnotes for the benefit of those who come after.
