Robinson and Corby

[Extract from a longer article 1924] The Official Receiver, in his observations states that the debtor was employed in the shoe trade until June, 1919, when he and Frederick A. Corby [son of Fred Corby] commenced business in partnership as boot manufacturers, and traded as Robinson and Corby, in Harborough-road and Oswald-road, Rushden. Each partner contributed £80. The business was successful up to Christmas 1921, when a big loss was sustained in connection with a debt of £320, of which only £90 was received. In August, 1922, the partnership was dissolved, and Mr. Corby went out, taking book debts to the value of £30 as his share.
