LEECH and MACKEYEstablished: 1904
The partnership between Austin LEECH and Thomas W MACKEY in Johannesburg from 1904. They had both arrived in Johannesburg around 1902 but were first listed as partners, working from Corporation Buildings, in 1904. They gained 2nd premium in the first Pretoria Town Hall competition (1905/1906)and designed buildings in Johannesburg, Potchefstroom, Roodepoort and Germiston but so far none have been identified with certainty. The partnership appears to have ended in about 1907.
