Charles T Boosey 1857 -

Boosey front

.. was a Music Publisher and Band Instrument Manfacturer based in South London at the turn of the 20th C.

Banjos and zither banjos bearing the name made of Boosey and Co., of London were made in the early 1900's by both Windsor and Weaver, while a few of the cheaper models were of German origin.

When the dance-band boom started in the early 1920's the banjos sold under the Boosey name were imported from the U.S.A.

Boosey & Co. became incorporated with Hawkes & Co. in 1930 to become Boosey & Hawkes Ltd.
