Opening in 1764 in Bristol, the company was founded on Joseph Fry’s and Isaac Moore’s copies of the work of Baskerville and Caslon. Joseph retired in 1787 and left the business to his sons Edmund and Henry. The foundry moved to what after a while became Type Street in London. Joseph’s son Edmund sold up to the Fann Street Foundry in 1828. Type Street is now called Moore Street.
