HISTORICAL NOTE: this building is a particularly grand example of the integrated dwelling and factory, which employed numbers of "Little Mesters" in the workshops at the rear. This was a type of works organization which developed in the late C18 and early C19 in parallel with the tiny workshops of independent trades.
