Colbrook's Ice Factory, Guildford, Circa 1930

Colbrook's ice factory was part of the selection of businesses owned by the family. The family moved from Sussex to the Guildford area where they opened a butchers shop in the High Street. By the late 1860s they had opened a butchers shop in North Street and an ice factory. By about 1930 a further ice factory was owned and located in Walnut Tree Close.
