This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in Yorkshire, England in 1825. Britton immigrated to the U.S. in 1835 and by 1847 was working in NYC as a lithographer. After joining the Gold Rush to San Francisco in 1849, he was a partner in the lithography firm of Pollard & Britton. He later went into business with his brother-in-law, Jacques J. Rey. The firm produced letterheads, labels for whiskey bottles and cigars, pictorial letter sheets, posters, and stock certificates. He was also a city supervisor and provided financing for Hallidie's first cable car line. Britton died on July 18, 1901 in San Francisco where a street is named for him.
