It is thought that this impressive safe, obviously originally part of a longer run was originally installed at The Ritz, Piccadilly - presumeably as part of the original build. It opened on 24th May 1906 - the first major steel-framed building in London. Research continues.

 

Some of the box liners are lacking and some bear a different makers label "Henry & Co" of the same address as Holmes & Son: Hand Court High Holborn.
