Trade name of Ambrose Lewis Vago
This trade name was established by Ambrose Lewis Vago (1839-96). After his death it is not known who continued the business. One son, Alfred Vago (born 1861) worked as a plaster cast figure maker during his father's lifetime but had moved into catering by 1901. No other sons or daughters appear to have been involved in the firm. It is therefore assumed Vago and Co. was taken over by someone outside the family.
