Re: Jute mills of dundee
- Hi Michael,and all others that replied, i have found where i went wrong,
apparently it was not a jute mill but some form of hesion or sack place
that was called
BARN,S or Barnes Callender.
Im sorry for wasting anyones time looking for a jute mill ,i thought
that was what it was,but now told it was this sack or hesion bags placey
that sent things to the jute mills, Does anyone know of this place or
have any information about barnes callender? oh gooood i hope ive the
right name this time or i may be heading to the side lines,banished from
any more entries hahaha
thanks again to those that wasted time on the original
question...kindest regards John xxx
