In 1830, Mr James Smith founded the now famous firm of James Smith and Sons (Umbrellas) at Foubert’s Place, just off Regent Street in London’s West End. The umbrellas were made in a small workshop in the back of the shop and then sold to customers at the front. The company grew and moved to larger premises in 53 New Oxford Street, where the shop, almost unchanged, remains to this day, as a perfect example of Victorian shop front design. It is one of the landmarks of Central London and is commonly referred to as ‘The Umbrella Shop’ by black cab drivers and locals alike.
