As a thriving industrial centre Halifax was home to shops, trades and amenities of all descriptions. The Halifax Shopping Festival and Exhibition was organised by the Halifax Chamber of Trade to allow retailers and trades people the opportunity to promote their goods and services to local people. Although the majority of those who exhibited were local firms, some came to Halifax from further afield. The image on this page is taken from the festival handbook for 1936. The handbook was designed to give the public an idea of what to expect from the exhibition, in addition to other features such as short stories, articles and competitions.

This particular item is an advertisement for Baldwin & Walker, who were founded in 1836. Baldwin & Walker were the manufacturers of the renowned Ladyship Wools. In 1936 production took place at the company's premises in West Croft Mills, King Cross. The company remained here until they moved to Scarboro Mills in the 1970s.
