General Information:

Macmillan - 1930 Thornton & Turpin, Plumbers, Sanitary and Domestic Engineers - started in 1926. Both partners - Messrs. F.J. Thornton and T. Turpin - had long and extensive experience as plumbers, sanitary and domestic engineers in England, and the fact that they are authoritative experts in all the work they undertake accounts doubtless for the development of their business at Mombasa, where they have a branch, as well as at Nairobi
