Can anyone help confirm the connection:
In 1857 Joseph Martin Kronheim, Baxter Licencee trading under the name JM Kronheim & Co sold his London business and moved back to his native Germany and then at some time after went to to America and, according to Baxter researcher of the 1920’s C L Courtney Lewis, started a printing business in America with his son. We know that Kronheim & Co issued the Centennial Home Ins Calender 1876 from 9 Dey Street* New York and also the "Howe (sewing machines sc) Exhibition Catalogue" Published for the Centennial Exhibition, Philadelphia, 1876 from the same address was in some way connected to his old London based company Was he in business with his son the Martin Kronheim that had long term associations with Wemple and others?
*Chas E Wemple is noted as trading from 23 Dey Street in 1877
What I know already:
1869 - 1879 – Wemple & Kronheim – in 1879 a fire seemed to damage much of their stock of Lithographic stones , by this date it was most probably their 79 White Street adddress.
1879- Kronheim, & Manzando (formally Wemple & Kronheim)
1876 - Kronheim traded as Laserowitsch & Kronheim from the same address as Wemple & Kronheim – in 1874 Chas E Wemple was also in partnership with Sidor Laserowitsch along with Augustus W Phelps trading as Wemple, Laserowitsch & Co of 62 Cedar Street, an address which Wemple & Kronheim was trading from in 1872
Lastly we find in 1882 C .E . Wemple & M Kronheim having a charge over S Raynor for lithographic stones, presses, office furntiutre etc possibly their remaining assets after all the various Wemple and Kronheim partnships had finished trading as we can find no mention of new work after 1879
Any info, help or comments would be appreciated
