I wonder where that background is. Can't quite make out the company name - JOHALSON? and Company Cement Works

Looking at it again I think it is the more straightforward JOHNSON AND COMPANY CEMENT WORKS.

I suspect this refers to Isaac Charles Johnson (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Charles_Johnson)
and the photo is their plant at Gateshead, formerly Aspdin's.
