Hello all. Wonder if anyone can help with a question about a former factory in Old Kent Rd ...
I visited the Poppy Factory in Richmond today. Apparently it moved to Richmond in 1925. The original factory was in an old shirt collar factory in Old Kent Rd - which would’ve been there before 1922. Does anyone know where that was please?
The name of the factory could’ve been - ? Brothers.
It may have been in SE15 but taking a punt on SE1.
Sorry - nothing else to go on! Hope you can help.
