Brief Description: Birds-eye view of Huntley & Palmers factory
Subject Date: 1889
Publisher: Huntley & Palmers
 
Full Description: This view of the biscuit factory about 1889 shows how cramped the site had become as the factory grew in a piecemeal fashion. The factory's convenient location is clear from this image as the canal can be seen running through the centre of the site.
