MS 378 Two volumes relating to the Salomons family

Two large volumes of papers relating to Salomons family members, most notably the first two Davids. Sir David Salomons, first Baronet (1797-1873), was a banker who also had a distinguished public career, serving as Lord Mayor of London and as Member of Parliament for Greenwich. His nephew and heir, Sir David Lionel Goldsmid-Stern-Salomons (1851-1925) was a barrister, scientist and inventor who pioneered developments in motoring and electricity.

The papers provide a fascinating glimpse into Sir David Salomons’ public career and to Sir David Lionel Goldsmid-Stern-Salomons’ scientific research, including relating to electricity, motor vehicles and the improvement of the construction of fire proof buildings.
