Marion and Company Ltd was a camera maker in London (from an earlier company in Paris[1]) from the early 1840s until 1921, when the company was one of the seven British firms which merged to form APM. Marion & Co. Ltd was only the last name of the company, which was founded as Augustin Marion, and changed its name several times[2]. The company also changed its address in London several times before settling in Soho Square. This address led to the Soho name being applied to some of the company's most successful products, including the Soho Reflex range of cameras of the early 20th century. The name Soho was also preserved in the names of later companies arising from the break-up of APM, Soho Ltd and Kershaw-Soho.
