About Me and Contact Information

Who am I?

The youngest of three sons of Henry Holladay, the last Managing Director of Garton & King Ltd.

You can contact me by email at (Please type the address into your mailer program).
Alternatively I can be contacted by post or phone:
     Richard Holladay, Higher Mill House, Clifford Street, CHUDLEIGH, TQ13 0LH
     Phone 01626852512

You may be able to help me. This is what I am looking for and why:-

Any examples of the company’s products that still exist today so that they can be photographed & recorded & possibly added to this website.

I am also interested in acquiring or being loaned examples of the company’s literature, brochures, compliment slips, letterheads, receipts, payslips, letters, orders & any photograph relating to Garton & King.

I am similarly interested in listening to & maybe recording experiences & memories from those who worked in the company - showroom – draughtsmen – fitters – foundrymen – patternmakers – machine operators – cleaners – clerical staff etc., or being put in touch with any past employee.

Where were Garton and King located in Exeter?

190 High Street – retail ironmongers
28 & 29 Waterbeer Street – foundry
Tan Lane – foundry from 1939
Central Station, Queen Street – showrooms
19 North Street – showrooms
(see Map)
