The London Genuine Beer Brewery (also known as the Golden Lane Brewery of Barbican) was founded in 1804 by William Brown and Joseph Parry when they took over the existing Combrune's Brewhouse. They wished to attack the London porter brewers who were selling (often adulterated) beer at fixed prices. Brown and Parry promised to sell their beer at discounted prices to the pubs and guaranteed its quality by using only malt and hops.
William Barnard (1774 - 1849) was an English mezzotinter active in London. He had premises at No.18, London Street, Fitzroy Square (1797-8) and No. 1, Fitzroy Street, Fitzroy Square (1806).
Dean Wolstenholme I (1757 - 1837) was an English painter best-known for his sporting scenes. Many prints were produced after his work, but he never engraved himself.
