1892 Obituary [1]

GEORGE WINN WEBB, who was the eldest son of the late Mr. George Webb, solicitor, of 3 Crosby Square, London, was born on the 16th of November, 1850. He was educated at a private school at Dalston, and afterwards at the Moravian College, Neuwied, Germany.

On his return to England, in 1866, he was placed in a merchant’s office, which, however, he left in November of the same year, in order to proceed to Russia with his father, who was engaged professionally in the organization of the City of Moscow Gas Company. The Manager of this Company was the late Frederick Leslie, to whom young Webb, after twelve months’ probation, was articled, in 1867, for four years. During that period he was engaged on the construction of the greater part of the company’s extensive works, and in the laying of the gas-mains throughout the city.

On the expiration of his articles he became principal assistant to Mr. Leslie, taking charge of the works and district during that gentleman’s absence from Moscow.

In 1881 the City of Moscow Gas Company ceased to exist, and Mr. Webb returned to England. After a few months’ rest he entered the service of the Tramways Union Company in 1882, and proceeded to Bremen as Assistant Manager. He was subsequently transferred to Bucharest, . . . [more]
