HARDING & SONS, HARDWARE MERCHANTS, TIN PLATE WORKERS JAPANNING.
George Harding & Sons at No. 19 Tabard Street in 1891, opposite Silvester Street.
Before Harding & Sons the site was occupied by Timothy Roche, a floor cloth dealer.
“The original George Harding set up as a tinplate manufacturer in 1835 in White Street, under the sign 'The Original Little Dust Pan'. His stocks were warehoused in the old Marshalsea prison building. During the late c19 and early c20 they also had offices and a warehouse at 207 Borough High Street (since demolished), Nos. 25-33 and 35 Long Lane (demolished) and 22 Tabard Street (demolished), all of which carried around 8,500 household and garden lines.”
