Joseph Louis Casartelli, 1823 – 1900, was born Guiseppe Luigi Casartelli in Tavarnerio, Italy.

1834 Emigrated to Liverpool, joining Luigi Casartelli (also known as Louis Casartelli) in his scientific instrument business.

Joseph later moved to Manchester and established himself as a maker of mechanical and optical equipment. Around 1850, Casartelli expanded his products to include microscopes, telescopes, cameras and other optical devices. He also operated a photographic studio when in Manchester. By the 1870s-80s, his products were primarily focused on supplying the industries of Manchester.
