Poplar Glass Works Ltd
« on: November 21, 2007, 11:13:02 PM »
Just a long shot, has anyone heard of Poplar Glass Works Ltd?

1946 registered office was 41 Sackville St. London
1946 leased property in Brentwood for 7 years, A Godfrey Thornfield of Hendon involved as Director & Surety
1947 company wound up

Possibly set up after the war and just failed to make it, or expansion. Cannot get on-line company data.

Odd that it should use the name Poplar unless there was a previous business their. Not much trace but a Poplar history site did mention:
Thames Plate Glass Works. Bow Creek. c1700 to c1840 (vague) closed in 1874 a school "Bow Creek London Board School" was built on the site c1894 or 1870  ::), closed 1965 demolished after 1956. Close to Canning Town Station.Although dates could be wrong as contradicted on another part of same site, but not by much.
