    Keisers I think. Pics of it on this forum. Not sure about it being a glass factory though, that was Thomas Bells along the road. I think Keisers were a carriage operator according to the huge slate slabs on its walls and then Rushworths bought the building and used it for making/storing pianos.

    Thanks for the spelling , my father-in -law worked there before and after the war and he said it was glass and mirror works .
    Perhaps it was a carriage operator before that .
