Messrs. John Buckley and Co., Borough Mills, Marsh Street, Hanley.

For over half a century past the business of Messrs. John Buckley and Co., Corn and Flour Millers, has held an established position in North Staffordshire, giving the firm every claim to rank among the oldest houses in this industry in the district.

The records of the business extend hark over fifty years, when it was founded by the late Mr. John Buckley, by whom, it was subsequently continued for many years. About five years since it passed into the possession of Mr. Henry Buckley King, grandson of the original founder. This gentleman infused into the management a large degree of energy and enterprise, and in his hands the business has more than doubled, necessitating considerable extensions to the premises.

The Borough Mills are centrally situated in Marsh Street, Hanley, and consist of commodious buildings, containing spacious accommodation for the work of the several departments of the business in which the firm is engaged.

The mills are fully equipped with powerful plant and machinery, driven by steam, for the manufacture of flour in the most modern and improved methods, from the various qualities of wheat obtained from all parts of the world, also for dealing with different kinds of provender.

Messrs. Buckley are also engaged in the business of corn merchants, having a wide-spread connection in this line throughout the Potteries, in addition to their large trade in supplying bakers and shopkeepers with flour, &c. An efficient staff of hands is employed in the mills and warehouses, and the arrangements throughout are on the most complete scale for facilitating the work in each department of the business.

The mills are placed in communication with the Telephone Exchange No. 112, and telegrams should be addressed to "Buckley, Millers, Hanley."
