Arding & Hobbs

Arding & Hobbs built 1885 as the largest department store south of the Thames.
With the telephone No.'Battersea 4' and a telegram address of 'Greatness' the staff were expecting their normal bumper Christmas in 1909. The store was fully stocked and decorated, when at approx 4.20pm on 20 December a fire broke out in a window display.
The resulting blaze claimed 8 lives and destroyed the store and many other buildings.
