Lombard St, Southwark, London.

1875 Advert: 'Parsons' White Brass. I HEREBY give notice that the arrangement I entered into with Mr. C. S. Osborne for the manufacture of PARSONS' WHITE BRASS has been terminated, and that I have appointed the White Brass Company, Lombard-street, Southwark, S E., sole manufacturers, from whom alone the White Brass can now be obtained.
P. M. PARSONS.' ......

...... 'The White Brass Company,
LOMBARD-STREET, SOUTHWARK, S. E.,
HAVING been appointed by the Inventor and Proprietor Sole Manufacturers of WHITE BRASS, have erected a commodious foundry for the purpose of carrying on the business, under the superintendence of Mr. P. R. Parsons, son of the inventor, end are now prepared to supply the White Brass in ingots, bearings, and other castings.
Many years' experience of Parsons' White Brass has proved it to be superior to all other metals for the bearings of Railway Carriages, Locomotive, Marine, and Land Engines, Shafting, Rolling Mills, Fans, and the wearing parts of all kinds of machinery.
It wears fully three times as long as gun-metal, while its price is 25 per cent. less.
Reports, testimonials, prices, and all particulars may be obtiained from THE WHITE BRASS COMPANY, Lombard-street, Southwark, S.E.'[1]
