SW Farmer & Sons Engineering, Lewisham
« on: January 29, 2014, 01:43:15 PM »
I am looking for information about this company. It was founded in 1898 and went private in 1929; as of 1961, it was a "constructional engineers, general iron workers and makers of iron staircases" with 450 employees. That's all I've found so far (Source: http://www.gracesguide.co.uk/S._W._Farmer_and_Son) and I think I may need to take a trip to Lewisham Library.

But I would be most grateful for any memories of the place, especially if you worked there between 1949 and 1954 or your parent/grandparent did! It's for a book I'm writing.

Many thanks,
Stewart
