Pearce Duff were advertising by 1866. At this time the firm was based at 42 Long Lane, Borough, London.
By 1884 control of the firm had passed to George Pearce and Daniel Duff (1837 – 1917).
The business was relocated to Rouel Road, Bermondsey on the former premises of Young & Co, a glue manufacturer, from 1890.
In 1914 the partners were Daniel Duff, Mrs Elizabeth Jane Duff (born 1870), Daniel Duff Jr (1879 – 1953), James Thomas Hosking (1856 – 1922) and Leslie George Cockhead (1861 – 1947). Nearly 500 people were employed at Rouel Road factory, which spanned five storeys.

The Salvation Army hostel and recycling centre opened in Spa Road, Bermondsey, in 1899 with the purpose of not only getting homeless men off the street, but also to help them rebuild their lives.

In 1913 the elevator was devastated by fire – and again by another blaze in 1984. Spa Road eventually closed its doors in 2001 and the building was demolished in 2003.

Found this old film about the Salvation Army in Spa Road. All the years I lived in Bermondsey and I never gave a thought as to what went on in there.

Hi kevinm, like the video, brings back some great memories of the area.

Queens Arms Pub, Spa Road, photo taken from the Neckinger. The alley to the right was called Parkers Buildings in c1900 and leads into the Vauban Estate.
