Re: M. I. Tobias & Co. - Watchmakers of Liverpool
I have just bought some watch movements, among them is one
with M.I.Tobias 22 Lord Street Liverpool. I too am interested in liverpool watch makers, but in the main Richard Hornby. So I looked at my copy of Pigot &Co Liverpool 1828-29 & find under Watch & Clockmakers,
TOBIAS MIEL ISAAC, 22 Lord Street. This could be wrong.
Baillie has Michael Isaac Tobias 1805-29 This could be the right spelling.
Loomes: Has only two watchmakers,Even, Llandeilo 1810-40
(Not far from liverpool in wales). S.I.&Co USA 1829. Hope this helps and good luck.
