This was the umbrella factory of Sol. Schaverien & Co who I am told made the Mary Poppins umbrellas for the film, also all M&S; umbrellas and Pollybrollys as used by HRH The Queen Mother.

I have an umbrella made by Sol Schaverien in London 1901. It is a good quality umbrella but have no ideal how it ended up in Manchester. It was found in my Dads Garage. Anymore information on the family would be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance
Regards
Nicola
