This is 523 Coombe Road, the Peak.  It had a 75 year lease from 1920 and was allocated to No 1 OSSC.



Hi Jennifer, please could you explain what "allocated to No 1 OSSC" means?

This building appeared in a few of the recent Warren Swire photos:

Any idea which year your photo was taken?

Regards, David

OSSC stands for the Ocean Steam Ship Company owned by the Holts.  Unfortunately I do not know the year of the photo-it is from an album either at SOAS in London - part of the Swire Archive, or at the Swire Headquarters in London.
