E Lanham and Son. || Thomas Burberry came to the town and purchased the drapery business of Thomas Loader in 1856. This was the start of the tailoring business that evolved into the internationally renowned quality goods manufacturer and retailer of today. He also established a household goods store. As his businesses expanded, Thomas sold off various parts of his tailoring business: the ready-made side to Gerrish, Ames and Simpkins in 1878 , the bespoke general tailoring factory to John Mares in 1894 and ‘The Emporium’, his departmental store, to Edgar Lanham in 1922. All of these purchasers (except Simpkins) were ex-employees. It is not known if Burberry retained any shareholding in the businesses that he sold off. The tailoring businesses, along with his own factory for manufacture of high class bespoke tailoring, were major employers of female labour in the town. The connection with Basingstoke ended with the cessation of tailoring in the Basingstoke factory in 1957.|| Source: http://www.victoriacountyhistory.ac.uk/explore/sites/explore/files/explore_assets/2013/07/13/basingstoke_before_redevelopment_bob_applin.pdf|| This pdf may be of interest to others wishing to label points of interest for Basigstoke.

Yet another sad example of a lovely market town turned into a hideous concrete jungle. RIP Basingstoke.
