Glove Manufacturers of West Hendford


Tarantella (Edna Kirby) Ltd was a small, short-lived glove manufacturing company of the early 1970s. Their first listing in the trade directories that I could find was in Kelly's Directory of 1970 in which they were listed as glove manufacturers of 56 West Hendford. The final listing I found was in Kelly's Directory of 1974.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think that 56 West Hendford was where the old candle factory had been in the 1880s on the corner of Wellington Street, later Taylor's paint stores - can anyone confirm?

Nothing further is known at this time. Please contact me (see below) if you have any further information on this company.




The building at centre in this 1960s photograph was, I believe, the premises of Tarantella (Edna Kirby) Ltd during the early 1970s.
