Robert Liddle and Charles van Buren Kaeding bought the Bogart Brothers Sportsmen's Emporium in 1859.
The company was known as R. Liddle & Co. When Kaeding became an active parter in 1866 the company was
named Liddle & Kaeding. They also kept the Sportsmen's Emporium name. In the mid 1870s they were
the largest firearms dealer in San Francisco.
In 1889 Kaeding left the company and the name changed again to Liddle & Co. (Robert Liddle and his
both sons George and Robert H.). The father retired in 1895 and Robert H. Liddle became the
administrator of the company until its closure in 1898.
