This  is all information was saved when the engineering works was closed in  1963
The items shown above come from old catalogues that where saved.
The contents of the factory was sold as scrap and the documentation  was lost.
The works which employed a large number of people in its better years
was reduced down to about 3 in the last year.

One of  the main reasons for the closure was the redevelopment of this area
of Nottingham called St. Ann's, a area of old run down housing and factories.
The site where Robin Hood Works was is now a new housing estate on a
different road layout.
