This is the interior of Frank Cooper's marmalade factory. This was his new factory where the company continued production and sales of marmalade after 1900. The photograph shows women and girls shredding fruit. They are wearing aprons over their everyday clothes. Some of them are also wearing removeable sleeves to protect their clothes. Coopers marmalade was previously sold from Frank Cooper's High Street shop and made at the back of the shop. The marmalade recipe was based upon his wife Sarah's recipe.
