André & Sleigh of Bushey --> Printing Industry at Watford

Under the Baa Lamb Trees, Harpenden, by Ernest Hensman
While investigating some post cards of Harpenden painted by Ernest Heasman (Stained Glass Artist, 1874-1927) I discovered the firm of André & Sleigh, of Bushey, who started high quality photo engravers as top quality photoengravers in the late 19th century. In the 20th century the business expanded and became Sun Engraving Co. Ltd., of Whippendale Road, Watford, - and a cornerstone of the Watford printing industry.
