Philip Carpenter began working as a manufacturing optician in Birmingham in 1808, specialising in spectacles and microscopes, before becoming manufacturer of Brewster’s Patent Kaleidoscope in 1817. In 1826 Carpenter moved his business to 24 Regent Street in Westminster. Few years after he started production of the Improved Phantasmagoria Lantern and the Kaleidoscope; he sold instruments to Liverpool and Bristol and supplied telescopes to the Dollands of London. Wealthy socialites would visit Regent Street to browse the numerous shops and fabric warehousesand attend a popular attraction. In this context, Carpenter converted his shop into a public attraction in its own right, establishing ‘The Microcosm: A Grand Display of the Wonders of Nature’, an exhibition of microscopic objects. He died in 1833, and was succeeded by his sister Mary. In 1837, she took William Westley, who had been apprenticed to Carpenter from 1821, into partnership and the Carpenter business became Carpenter & Westley.
