Sir Horace B. Marshall (Junior)

Person  Male  Born 5/8/1865  Died 29/3/1936

Publisher and newspaper distributor and Lord Mayor of London, 1918–1919. Born Streatham, son of Sir Horace Brooks Marshall, whose business he joined. His daughter married J. Arthur Rank.

Searching for a picture we found the ceremonial trowel he used to affix a plaque which we will soon be publishing. The auction catalogue description is "An Art Nouveau gilt metal ceremonial trowel, the reverse engraved: I was vsed by Sir Horace B Marshall to fix a memorial colvmn of the Leysian Mission City Road EC April 22 1903." So we've decided to use that rather than a picture of another middle-aged white man in a suit.
