Thomas Green & Son
On the northern edge of the city centre on North Road the office building of Thomas Green's Smithfield Works still survives. This building was originally the Smithfield Hotel before being converted to the works offices, the works that once stood behind the office building have all been demolished. Note the name T. Green & Sons on the clock tower. The building is fitted with a blue plaque.
