Brief Description: First Name News, Huntley & Palmers staff magazine. Vol.2 No.1 Front cover with an artist's impression of the original London Street bakery
Subject Date: September 1956
Publisher: Huntley & Palmers
Full Description: This was the staff magazine of Huntley & Palmers that was regularly produced between September 1954 and December 1964. The title was a play on the company's slogan of the time 'Huntley & Palmers, the first name in biscuits'. It was the winning suggestion of a staff competition with a first prize of £2.25. The magazines contained information about staff, factory and events during this period. They included 'News from Huyton'- the new Huntley & Palmers factory at Liverpool, 'Tinformation' - news from Huntley, Boorne & Stevens, Recreation Club news (including regular reviews of productions by 'The Bourbons', the factory's drama group) and congratulations on weddings and anniversaries.
