Messrs. Taylor and Lawson, an English firm, who commenced operations in premises facing the Canal between Weltevreden and Old Batavia, about half a century ago. Their extensive steam plant has turned out some of the biggest iron works, such as bridges, steam cranes, etc., ordered by the Government. The original owners have long since passed away. The present proprietor, Mr. J. R. C. Semmelink, after complet-'ng his studies as engineer in Scotland, has maintained the high standard of excellence for which the firm is noted.
