Brief Description: Photographs taken in Rangoon in 1950 of a Huntley & Palmers sandwich man selling biscuits
Subject Date: 1950
 
Full Description: As Huntley & Palmers export trade boomed, the Far East became an important recipient of Huntley & Palmers global sales. By 1906 6.9% of Huntley & Palmers overseas trade was sent to Burma. However, in the aftermath of the Second World War, importing countries began to increase their import tariffs. By 1967 Huntley & Palmers traditional markets in India and Burma had vanished.
