General Acoustics General Acoustics 77 Wigmore St., London UK 1899 click
 From a letterhead weve seen we know that General Acoustics was established in 1899 and that they were at the 77 Wigmore Street address in 1930. We have a metal swan shape trumpet with them at 18 Hanover Street, probably 1920s or before. They are already at the Wigmore Street address in the 1927 PO London directory, so one could say that the move probably took place somewhere around 1925, but I cant be more precise than that.

Complicating matters, they dont appear at all in the 1918 PO London (the next earliest we have), and 18 Hanover Street is a dentist . However, their trade mark was Acousticon, and there is a hearing aid firm AcousticonS at 353 Oxford Street in 1918, so we might be dealing with a name change as well.

All in all, my current guess is 18 Hanover St. c.1920-25, 77 Wigmore St. 1925 onwards.
