The Broadhurst Clarkson firm was active from 1892 to 1906; when the partnership dissolved, the business was carried on by Robert Broadhurst.

The legend says that a day in 1608 sons of an optician in the Dutch town of Middelburg were playing with lenses made by their father in laboratory. When one of them put a concave lens near his eye keeping a convex lens in the other hand, and stretched his arm to the bell-tower of cathedral, he saw the weather-cock on the point to become bigger and nearer. He showed this fact to his father: he fixed lenses with the right distance on a small board, making the observation more simple, creating the first instrument for optical approaching; then this instrument was perfected changing the small board into a cardboard pipe that eliminated that external light making possible to see the framed objects more clearly.
