We think this old photograph dates from 1964, most likely at Interstoff (Trade fairs looked different then!) It shows the original founder of Marson Fabrics, Mr Marcus, negotiating with an American agent. We’ve shared this photo with Tony Singer (retired MD and past owner) who confirms that Mr Marcus was a smooth-operating cigar man. We wonder what qualities of fabrics were being discussed? Marson Fabrics are known for offering fashion forward fabrics, developed to be this season’s winners, but we’re talking 1964 here, so maybe it was some lovely crimplene???
Tony believes that the agent is still working…If you see this, Mr American Agent, let us know who you are!
