British American Tobacco 1920

Does anyone know where the British American Tobacco factory was in the early 1920s and are there any employment records anywhere? My grandmother Elsie Radcliffe worked for them around 1924/5 when she married James Filson. I wondered what sort of job she would have done.

If you google, British American Tobacco factory, Liverpool, info plus National Archives.

"BA" as it was known was one of the primary employers in Kirkdale, I'm sure you will get some of the history by googling as Bertieone has suggested, it was located on Commercial Road and I believe this was the building (I might be wrong and it might have been further along, building which is now gone, but I'm fairly sure that I'm right), now apartments. https://www.google.com/maps/@53.4288923,-2.9874949,3a,75y,209.97h,95.33t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s8TJ5TpB-1gVJdRn9KWmS5A!2e0!7i16384!8i8192
