Does anyone know if it was acetate or viscose fibre produced?

This was an ill-fated artificial silk mill. I stumbled on the image and was interested in the name. A couple of Google searches later I had found some of its history which I have attached to the image.

SPECIALLY WBITTEN TOE THE C0URIEE-MAIL

BRADFORD, November 1.

The premises and machinery belong ing to Brysilka, Ltd., a private company floated at the height of the post war boom at a cost of about £750,000, for tne manufacture of artificial silk yarn, have been offered by public auction.

At the time of flotation no expense was spared in making the concern

efficient and up to date. Many modern appliances and office fitments

were installed. Lavish provision was made for the staff and workpeople.

The whole concern seemed to be the last word in textile entei-Drise, but it was unable to compete with others, for the artificial silk turned out did not satisfy users' requirements, and eventually the whole place was closed down, having remained so until the dispersement sale in which everything was sold at 'giving away' prices. The machinery was only scrap, as it could not be adapted for any other purpose.



The building is ideally situated, being only about six miles from Bradford, quite near to the Midland and Scottish Railway, and the Leeds and Liverpool Canal. It could be adapted for a combing mill, for the effluent could be easily disposed of. If growers could examine the raw material used in this mill for the manufacture

of artificial silk yarn they would probably be astonished. It is. of course, well known that artificial silk is made from wood pulp, and in the dry state this 'raw material' looks very much like cotton, but handles very woody, and, has no long, fibre in it. One wonders how it can be made to spin at all. - ?
