Tweddell And Sons

After a period in Bury as head of Ragged school and a period in Middlesbrough as a printer / publisher, Tweddell set up a print shop in Stokesley in the early 1860's with his son and compositor Horatio Tweddell. Below is a photo of the print shop in Stokesley (now replaced by flats) and some of  Horatio's print works sent to me by Paul Tweddell. Tweddell and Sons is the small building next to the Hovis sign.

Another of Tweddell's commercial enterprises with Horatio. The shop was in Commercial Row (now Bridge Street Stokesley - next to what is now Fatso's but in the 1860's.
