Waterlow and Sons Printing


The origins of the Waterlow & Sons Printing Company date back to 1810. Waterlow & Sons Limited was incorporated in 1897 and by the 1920s was one of Britian's largest printers of bank notes, stamps as well as other material. Waterlow & Sons was eventually acquired by De La Rue around 1961[1].
