ActivityBrookes Ltd. were granite merchants based in Halifax in Yorkshire from at least 1921. They dealt in the new market of imported granites such as Emerald Pearl and Balmoral Red, and sold these granites, mostly in small quantities for monumental sculpture, to Aberdeen granite manufacturers and merchants such as G. Ruddiman and Son or D.M. Kinghorn. In 1932 the firm opened offices in Pittodrie Street, Aberdeen, which was in the centre of the granite industry in the city. The office remained open until 1969, though headquarters remained in Halifax.
