Morton's Jam Factory

Categories: Commerce

The production of jam was actually a minor function of this factory, as it produced a wide range of canned foods (our picture shows tinsmiths at work). The Millwall Football Club was founded here, and as many of the workers were Scottish, this is supposedly the reason why the club play in a blue and white strip. We haven't been able to find out who Morton was.
