Brief Description: Exterior views of the Huntley & Palmers factory at La Courneuve, Paris near St Denis
Subject Date: Around 1930
 
Full Description: Unfavourable exchange rates with France after the First World War and high import tariffs presented problems for Huntley & Palmers business with France. A solution to these problems was to establish a Huntley & Palmers factory in France. This was set up in 1924 but was never truly successful in part due to the occupation of France during the Second World War. France was the only overseas country Huntley & Palmers ever manufactured in.
