1955 – 1972
Our story begins in Edgware, a district in the North of London. During the second half of the century, many people felt compelled to recover the prosperity that existed previous to the second World War. Lots of work had to be done, but some people had a vision that surpassed the fear of the challenge. John Albert Goode, born in 1934, shared that vision.
At 21 years old, John started Goode Brothers in 1955, along with John, his wife Elsie, and his brother Brian. Initially focused on bespoke home decor, the range of services was vast and varied. They provided everything from soft furnishings to carpentry.
