Squire and Longson

From Graces Guide

Squire & Longson, London

1829 Business established

A small manufacturer, who built solid musical instruments (from 1918) with a powerful, rich tone.

Despite the turbulent times, Squire and Longson survived the period, making good quality instruments under the brand name of Cremona, and also under the name Welmar for Whelpdale, Maxwell, and Codd until 1929, when their premises were destroyed by fire — a fate suffered so often by instrument makers. The factory was rebuilt.

Eventually Kemble and Co acquired S and L and produced their own pianos with the S and L name until the 1970s. [1]
