    but company name of Drew & Sons is retained, too

    1909
    Address changes from 33-37 Piccadilly to 33, 35 & 37 Piccadilly

    1928
    Firm takes on Limited Company status

    1973
    Drew & Sons (Piccadilly) struck from Companies House Register


    The name "J Drew & Son" seems to have been re-registered at some point - at least it is on file with Companies House:

    Whether it is anything to do with the original company I do not know.

    I'm pretty sure that is me casting a shadow over that picture...from my j. drew & sons seven day set. I'll try and get some better photos taken. Thanks for all of the info and research done, fellas. Now if only I could find a matching ivory scale set for the one that has a crack, my seven day set would be tip top.

    I stumbled across this thread and found it quite interesting. I worked at 7 North Audley from 94-97 while I was in the US Navy. I don't remember seeing a silversmith sign above any doors in the area. I do remember quite a few nice pubs though. Now I need to find one of those Drew and Sons Piccadilly razors.

    Indeed, I suppose this interesting thread, enhanced by Neil Miller, has inspired me to include my pair of Drew and Son razors as well as a horn/ivory brush from the Piccadilly Circus establishment.

    I rest my case.
