Louis Panormo was the son of Sicilian violin maker Vicenzo Panormo (1734-1813) who moved to London with his four sons who all found work as musicians, instrument makers or music publishers. Louis advertised himself as “the only maker of guitars in the Spanish style”, and had this slogan painted above his shop on Bloomsbury High Street. Panormo's guitars were well known and the Spanish guitarist Antonio Trinitario Huerta (1800-1874) played a Panormo guitar in 1827 while in England. Panormo's daugher Angelina married Huerta in 1828.
