The Tate and Lyle sugar refinery by the River Thames. The Tate and Lyle company was formed in 1921 from a merger of two rival sugar refiners, Henry Tate & Sons and Abram Lyle & Sons.
Henry Tate established his business in 1869 in Liverpool, later expanding to Silvertown, London. He used his industrial fortune to found the Tate Gallery in London in 1897.
