Brand Player's No 3
John Player founded his tobacco company in the mid-19th century in Nottingham, England. A new factory (the 'Horizon' factory) was opened in the early 1970s, on Nottingham's industrial outskirts, with better road access and more effective floor space. The old factories in Radford (especially the cavernous 'No.1 Factory') were gradually run down and the final demolition of the 'No.3 Factory', with its distinctive clock and rooftop 'John Player & Sons' sign, came in the late 1980s.
