Robert Kent Thomas (1816-1884) was a British etcher and lithographer of landscapes and buildings.
Day & Son was one of the largest and most prominent lithographic firms of the nineteenth century. Established in 1823 by William Day at 59 Great Queen Street, the firm later moved to 17 Gate Street. From c.1830 the company was often referred to as Day & Haghe, due to the popularity of the work of Louis Haghe. The firm was granted the status of 'Lithographers to Queen Victoria and to the Queen Dowager, Queen Adelaide' in 1837. The company became known as Day & Son in 1845 when William Day Senior died, leaving the business to his son William Day Junior.
