1960s

John Mackintosh reopened the Norwich factory in 1956, after a ten year rebuild following bombing during WWII. Most tins of the 1960s give the company details as ‘John Mackintosh & Sons, Halifax and Norwich’, although some just Norwich. Mackintosh merged with Rowntrees of York in 1969 to become Rowntree Mackintosh Ltd.
