Re: Identifying a button

Had a quick look and a play with the image but the bottom half is not very clear.
Looks to be 'Nottingham' below an unreadable image.

Is it possible to get a clearer image Gibbo

Re: Identifying a button

Just had a look on Google and there is a street called Angel Row so maybe this is a button from an article of clothing from a shop or manufacturer in Angel Row Nottingham?

Hi, thats what i was thinking. I had googled Angel Row and Nottingham but hadnt as yet been able to find where Wilson fits in but was thinking along the lines of a manufacture of clothing.

Re: Identifying a button

Joseph, John & Isaac Wilson, Hosiers of Angel Row, Nottingham.

Look at the highlighted name(in the link), then go back one page, and they are under the headline of Hosiers.

Hosier - a person who makes or deals in hose or goods knitted or woven like hose.
