Romney Green Workshop

Pictured fourth from the left is Romney Green at his workshop along with his staff at Christchurch in the 1920’s. Originally a teacher of mathematics at a boys’ school in Devon, Green became inspired by the ideas of William Morris and set up shop first in Haslemere in Surrey, then Hammersmith, and finally at 3 Bridge Street, Christchurch in Hampshire.

Green held quarterly meetings with his craftsmen to go over the numbers of the business so that each worker knew how much profit they would bring to the company.
