This is the remarkable story of one man’s drive and enthusiastic ambition to create an assaying empire, his exporting exploits a model for today’s entrepreneurs.
Fully referenced and beautifully illustrated, this publication is a posthumous autobiography, the fourth in the remarkable ‘Heritage’ series. It should delight all who have a general interest in science, international trade, as well as football.
Liverpool Football Club’s ground at Anfield was Alex Stewart’s second home. In recent years its new stadium incorporated the Chemistry Lounge and this became a meeting place for Alex and his friends at ‘Table 20’. Tales of the entrepreneur’s exploits throughout the world were there often repeated: the Stewart medieval and more recent ancestral heritage; Alex’s modest start in laboratory life; and the growth of his venture into a global enterprise with a unique and respected assaying brand, a source of immense pride. The annals of Liverpool FC during the life of this ardent football supporter are also here painstakingly recorded with wonderful anecdotes and illustrations.
Alex’s family, colleagues and friends, will find themselves fondly remembered in the pages of this enjoyable ‘dipping-in’ book; people meant so much to him.
