When I visit the archives there are always a few minutes to fill before the first batch of documents appears. I use them to search their paper catalogues.

I'm always well-prepared, because my time is so short. And every minute I save is one extra minute in the Gunmakers. So I have a whole wodge of request forms already filled in. But, because life would be bland dish without the spice novelty, I fill in one set there. For non-brewing records of some sort.

I'd never looked at anything in the Whitbread archive other than brewing logs. There are so many, I still haven't got anywhere near through the lot. A right bunch of hoarders, Whitbread. Their archive is huge. Including such things as newspaper clippings of their newspaper ads. I picked the book with ads from more exotic countries.

Like the Philippines.

Funny. I always thought of Mackeson as a drink for grannies.https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/5445569787371915337-4743167006408258683?l=barclayperkins.blogspot.com
