Mr Ivor Southorn, at the Brosley Clay Pipe works
Mr Ivor Southorn, whose great, great grandfather William Southorn started clay pipemaking on an industrial scale in Broseley, Shropshire. Mr Southorn is pictured in 1987 smoking a long clay pipe at Southorn's, Broseley Clay Pipe Works, at the time he was negotiating with Ironbridge Gorge Museum, to sell the factory and entire contents which had been abandoned since 1957. Broseley was the centre of clay tobacco pipe manufacturing, and pipes made here were the very best. Churchwarden long-stemmed pipes became a fashion in the coffee houses of Regency London. The 'time capsule' pipe factory is now part of the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Date: 1987
