Metropole Hotel Invoice

This is an invoice regarding the Metropole (or Metripole as gt Grandpa spelt it). J Garrod was Joseph Garrod, my great grandfather. The business was carried on by Edward, my grandfather and James & William my father and his brother. It is still going, trading as Garrod Brothers in North London. The owners are still family, albeit not Garrods. Before the advent of Rawlplugs the way to fix carpets to stone floors & staircases was to make a hole and fill it with lead, which was easy to screw into.

I am helping a descendent of Joseph Garrod b 1826 through his daughter Ellen to publish a book of his mother’s reminiscences in which Joseph is said to have suffered severe financial loss when the bank he used ( the Berwick ?) went under. Have you heard this story please ??
