Tharsis Sulphur and Copper Company Ltd

Hi

I was wondering if anyone had any photographs of the above company's old factory which was located at Tharsis St in Royston (and which the street is named after)? The local housing association Copperworks (who I work for) is named after the factory. We are celebrating our 25th anniversary this year and were trying to get as much information on the history of this site.
The company was founded by Charles Tennant and ran a number of mines in Spain.

Any help would be appreciated.

I don't, but I'd love to see some pics myself. Tharsis Street is very steep but
the houses to the east of it have long been known as the Copperworks. I always
used to wonder why.
