Brief Description: Huntley & Palmers factory interior. Female workers dry pasting labels on to tins for export
Subject Date: 1950s
Creator: Walton Adams
 
Full Description: The first Huntley & Palmers biscuit tins to be produced were square or rectangular in shape and decorated with a stuck-on paper label. The advances in tin printing in the second half of the eighteenth century saw the introduction of direct-printing onto tin enabling Huntley & Palmers to produce highly decorative tins of all shapes and sizes . However printing onto tin was expensive and paper labels continued to be used throughout the twentieth century.
