    Question Wylie Brothers Ltd South Shields

    Looking through a box of bits and pieces a while ago I came across a business card of my late father in law Arnold Smith, showing him as Managing Director of Wylie Brothers Ltd Slate Merchants of South Shields, probably in the mid 1930s.
    A quick look through local directories indicated that this company was in existence until about 1938 but I can find no trace of them since. 1938 was the year in which Arnold joined the Merchant Navy and I have presumed that he either sold the business or just closed it.

    Any thoughts out there?

    Hi

    The firm goes back a bit, as Wylie Bros were located in Victoria Road, South Shields
    in an 1897-1898 Trade Directory under Slaters and Slate Merchants.
