Morocco Factory 
http://www.the-smollers.com/sudi/wizweb/wizwebeconomicconditions.html
South Danvers Wizard, 5/11/1864, p. 2/1 
IMPROVEMENTS � �We learn that the enterprising firm of W. M. Jacobs & Son contemplate erecting a large Morocco Factory, the better to accommodate their increasing business. It is to be erected on the old Shove estate, opposite the Danvers Bank, and will be a building about 150 feet long by 40 wide, and four stories high. Their present manufacturing premises, although extensive, are much dilapidated, and, in consequence of the late boiler explosion, have become unsuitable for their manufacturing. The business of this respectable firm gives employment to many persons and the whole town is interested in its continued prosperity. We understand that the proposed plan of improvement will necessitate the removal of some of the buildings now on the ground. 
It is worthy of remark, as a coincidence, that the senior partner of the firm was formerly an apprentice to the late Squire Shove, the former owner of the estate, and used to work on the very spot where the new establishment is to be erected.�
