As an example of the other things printed by the company we have a lovely book, which we bought in a second hand shop, entitled The Pictorial Encyclopaedia of Gardening which was printed by Waterlow and Sons Ltd (London, Dunstable and Hyde).  It was bound by Nevett Ltd and the copyright is Sampson Low.  Interestingly there is no publication date but the illustrations, which are all drawn and painted, suggest the 1950s.

What a great photo, Plummiegirl, so clear, and such a great picture of the van.

Thanks very much for PMing me to tell me it was posted - hopefully this message will bring the thread back up to the top of the board!  ;D

Thanks Igor

Your reply really did the trick.

Yes the photo is very clear, I do believe it was a professional one done for the magazine or a news article at the time.

I think it was taken in the early to mid 1960's.

Greetings All!

I have just come across this forum as I am doing research for my book.  I am wrting the history of my family and the family firm (Waterlow & Sons) and I am keen to get as much information as I can about the company, particularly fomr about 1900 to its final demise in 2009.  It would be good to hear from  anyone who can help.  You never know there might even be a complimentary copy of the book in it for you!

In turn if anyone has any questions I will also try and answer them.
Any information regarding the printing firm of Waterlow & Sons Ltd from 1900 until their wind-up in 2009.

Hi Chris

Welcome to Rootschat!  I don't have very many details about Waterlows, except that my father and mother both worked there, in London, and, indeed, met there.  And my family history research has also established that my great great uncle probably also worked at Waterlow's at Dunstable.

However, I will try and find my father's autobiographical notes about the period of time he spent at Waterlows in case this is of interest to you.

Hello Chris

If you would like copies of the photos I have posted on here, both taken in the London workshop (back of Liverpool Street Station) at the time. 

Please PM me and we can arrange it.

Cheers

Just found out why my PMs may not have been getting through so I am making this my third posting to qualify.  Whoops!
