There were a number of companies trading as John Rigby and Sons. This image is of Low Moor - Bradford, which was a part of John Rigby and Sons Ltd, whose Head Office in 1943 was in Salford, with another branch in Cleckheaton. Low Moor in 1943 was a "sales office", in 1951 "head sales office", but by 1953 described as "Head Office". The company made cold drawn sections in steel and mild steel (including wire for concrete), brass and other alloys. They made solid drawn pinion wire in brass, stainless steel, aluminium, nickel alloy etc. Their wire was used for birdcages, lampshades, florists wire and so on. Possibly not the same company, but in 1979 a company called "John Rigby and Sons Ltd", incorporated in 1929, changed its name to Norton (Steel) Profiles Ltd, registered office in Birmingham. This company was dissolved in 1997.

It looks as if the Low Moor locomotive depot is in the background.
