GOLDIE, CHILD and GOLDIE

Established: 1860
Ended: 1953

Architect


A firm of architects founded by G Goldie (1828 - 1887) in London in 1860 and ending in 1953 with the death of his grandson, Joseph Goldie (1882-1953). The firm often worked for the Catholic church in Britain. Among their works is the Early English Gothic style chapel of the Convent of the Assumption in Kensington Square, London (1870s?). Bishop Jolivet arranged that they should design the Church of St Joseph in Durban in the mid 1870s and its foundation stone was laid in 1878. The foundations were completed by 1879 and the building was ready for use by November 1881. It was demolished in 1902.
