Other Notes: George Percival Holloway (b.1871) and Sidney Leonard Holloway (b.1880) were the sons of George O'Connor Holloway (1846-1920) of Holloway & Co of 10, 12 & 14 Vesey Street. They worked for their father, and when he sold the business to Midland Gun Co in 1902, they opened their own gunmaking business under the name of Holloway & Sons at the Imperial Works, Vesey Street, trading from 1914 as George & S. Holloway, but in 1916 Sydney Holloway died.
After WWI, the firm was a trade supplier, principally of barreled actions and component parts for other gun retailers and makers.The name changed to G & S Holloway in 1923.
The firm continued to trade and remain in family ownership until the 1990s.
