The plaque, situated on the Grade II-listed building, will mark Marshall’s contributions to the city’s textile industry.

It is just one of 168 plaques that has been erected since in 1987.

The legacy of Marshall as an “inventive and entrepreneurial driving force” is now quite literally set in stone.
