Tozza - Burroughs Wellcome later became The Wellcome Foundation. Smith Kline French eventually took over Beechams Pharmaceuticals to form Smith Kline Beecham. Glaxo had also taken over Wellcome to form Glaxo Wellcome. GW then bought out SKB to form the global pharmaceuticals giant we all know as GlaxoSmithKilne (GSK). I'm sure that if you were to get in touch with their world HQ at GreatWest Road, Brentford, Middlesex re your find, you could possibly make yourself a tidy wee sum, as I'm sure that a massive conglomerate like that would like to have something that they can associate to their "family tree"..

Interesting find though!!
