Reddish Maid Confections

Reddish Maid Confections

Reddish Maid Confections of Newark Road, Stockport produced only a single set of football cards. The company was based in Reddish, originally a small village near, but now swallowed up by, Stockport (though I’m told still a nice place to live). The confectionery company, known locally as the ‘Toffee Works’ was owned and run by the Co-operative Society. The Toffee Works, originally built in the 20s or 30s, was closed down and the factory itself knocked down to make way for houses around 1990.

A set of 25 cigarette card size coloured drawings. Since Reddish Maid was a confectionery company I’m going to assume that these were given away in packets of sweet cigarettes, but I can’t confirm this or tell you the name of the cigarettes.
