 A friend purchased this "Sinfield" showcard at the last Elsecar fair. Never heard of this company before and having made a few enquiries via Scarborough archives, it would seem that between 1890 & 1932, they are recorded as a wholesale and retail confectioner and Tobacconist with shops at 30 & 57, St Thomas St, & 75-76-77, Newborough St, 56 - Victoria St, 24- Sanside, 40- Westborough St, 10-Cliff Parade, 77- Castle Rd, 41-42-Westborough, 3 - Foreshore, 2-Aberdeen Walk, and 14, Huntress Row. That is a total of 11 shops in the area of Scarborough, which reduced to 7 shops between 1954-1958, in the 1960s 5 shops and 1971 - 1975 1 shop. Initially, they seem to dominate the market and there is no reference to tobacco/cigarette manufacturing. Mind you many retailers had there own brands manufactured  for them. Anyone heard of this company??

 Hi Alan,

It is a nice shopfront and it is a pity I am unable to enlarge it. These vintage shop fronts posted, were part of an exhibition of shop fronts from 1880s in Shrewsbury. Sadly, the light reflects in some of them but they do give an insight of the period. I did show them a few years back but always nice to look at. (Health & Safety???)

 Scarborough - Archives sent me a copy of the attached "Sinfield's" Guide and Tobacco Handbook which is a combination of a tourist guide to places of interest interdispersed with brief discussions about smoking. There is a mention about their "Golden Kurls" tobacco and "Spa Mixture" tobacco in 1/4 lb tins and 2oz tins. Anyone come across these????
