The photograph in question is one I submitted and I am starting to feel that it depicts the Dessford factory near Nanuoya. The unusual T shape should be a giveaway and appears to be so to me. If anyone can definitely identify this factory please advise the Editor.
Note: Date of photograph c. 1963

Well, it is certainly not Dessford; Hessel IJkse's photograph of the Dessford factory proves that!

Hello Ian,

The MF-Number on the roof should provide the answer. Is it visible on the original print?

I no longer have the original print, Hessel, but I do not recall there being a number visible on that factory.
NOTE to readers: The MF numbers to which Hessel refers are those painted at one time on factory roofs and which are listed against estates in the tea prices lists at the following web site - http://www.lcbl-sl.com/downloads/2009%20July.TXT
