Tailors’ Buttons

I. Goldenberg, Geelong

Isaac Goldenberg, opened his business as a tailor and mercer in 1900 at Little Malop Street. In 1920 the bulding was renovated and re-branded as Goldenberg, Field Pty Ltd. Isaac died in 1945, aged 68 years.

Lowe’s ltd Sydney & London

I have multiple buttons from Lowe’s, but this s the first I’ve seen marked “Newcastle & London”.

They used this title from 1918-1921.
