<><>Samuel Frazer Jones

1901 Herbal Brewer, Magnet House, Salford
 In 1901, Samuel Frazer Jones & Sons, herb beer brewers, Woodbine Street, Salford had already been founded.
Magnet House on Woodbine Street in 1901.  Then moved to Roland Street, off Trafford Road.
Alan has Frazer rather than Frasier in most of the directories.

I have only gone back as far as 1901. In that year Samuel Frazer Jones & Sons, herb beer brewers, Woodbine Street, Salford had already been founded.

In about 1920, the company had become S.F.Jones & Sons (Manchester) Ltd. and moved away from Woodbine Street and there is a gap [closed because brewery horses were commandeered by the army for W.W.I] until 1928 when it re-appears at Denbigh Street, Pendleton as herbal brewers. It also says wine and spirit merchants 14 Broad Street, Pendleton.
By 1932 they had moved again, to 377 City Road, Hulme on the corner with Lucy Street. This is the address given in the 1969 directory, the last one that I have consulted. So, they lasted quite a long time and were also the only Botanic Beer Brewers still listed at that time (In the early 1900s there were a total of 7 in the area).

You may also be interested to know that Herbert Colligan is given as a brewer at 4 Harold Street, Cornbrook in 1935. Alan Gall  (Geographical historian)

From a picture sent to me from Russ Parker:
In this picture you can see the marriage of Ernest Jones, to Annie in the flat cap to the left of the couple is Samuel Frazer Jones and to the right of the couple is Emmer Atkins who you'll recognize from the other pictures I sent you (slightly older in this one) Joseph Henry Jones with the top hat and mustache appears at the back left just right of the gentleman peering behind the lady with the two white flowers on her hat.
Look now at the group of ladies at the back of the picture, right of the lady with the white hat and striped lapel is another lady with a white
hat.....thats Margaret Jones (Simpson) and finally if you come forward back
to the bride and look at the distinguished mustached chap with bowler hat next to her......thats Wallace Simpson and in front of him, the boy on the right hand side at the front we believe is called Ernest Simpson, son of Margaret and Wallace
