Name of creator(s): DL Thomson and Co | stockbrokers
DL Thomson and Company were stockbrokers of 7 Drapers' Gardens, London, EC2. The firm appears to have been established in circa 1865 by David Lionel Thomson (born circa 1841), who was admitted as a member of the London Stock Exchange in December 1863.
The accounts refer to DL Thomson and Company (old firm) and DL Thomson and Company (new firm). From internal evidence it appears that the firm described as DL Thomson and Company (old firm) went into liquidation in 1920, but the firm described as DL Thomson and Company (new firm) continued to trade. DL Thomson and Company is listed in trade directories until 1928, after which date it ceases to appear.
DL Thomson and Company traded from 1 Pinners' Court, 1865-1866; 1 Shorters Court, 1867-1878; and 7 Drapers' Gardens, 1879-1928.
