Administrative/Biographical history:

Holliday and Greenwood was incorporated as a limited liability company in 1901 by James Samuel Holliday of Dulwich Common and Benjamin Isaac Greenwood of Shoreham, Kent. The company undertook a wide variety of contracts which included offices, factories, housing, shops, hospitals and schools in and around the London area. The first company office and works were situated at Loughborough Park, Brixton. In 1915 both operations were transferred to Stewarts Road, Battersea. Ten years later the offices were relocated to 146 Buckingham Palace Road, SW1, while the works, which by this time included a saw mill, joinery works, trade workshops and stores remained in Battersea. In 1962 the company was taken over by Higgs and Hill Limited, but continued to trade under the Holliday and Greenwood name until 1970.
