These Chairs retain an original Greenland of Hereford plaque. Back in 1856 George Greenland came to Hereford from Newbury in Berkshire and soon established a drapery business with a Mr Barrett in High Town.
After expanding the store with the acquisition of new properties in the city centre, the modest philanthropist passed away in 1901 but left the growing business to his four sons.
By the 1950s, the Greenlands 'empire' had reached its peak, and with more than 200 employees and stores as far away as Llandrindod Wells it became known as 'the Harrods of the West'.
