I'm only able to publish 5 photos on Etsy, so feel free to convo me for more pics! Huntley & Palmers was founded in 1822 by Joseph Huntley as J. Initially the business was a small biscuit baker and confectioner shop at number 119 London Street.Because the biscuits were vulnerable to breakage on the coach journey, he started putting them in metal tins. Out of this innovation grew two businesses: Joseph's biscuit shop that was to become Huntley & Palmers, and Huntley, Boorne and Stevens, a firm of biscuit tin manufacturers founded by his younger son, also called Joseph. Another important part of their success was their ability to send biscuits all over the world, perfectly preserved in locally produced, elaborately decorated, and highly collectable biscuit tins. The tins proved to be a powerful marketing tool, and under their easily recognizable image Huntley & Palmers biscuits came to symbolise the commercial power and reach of the British Empire in the same way that Coca-Cola did for the United States. The tins found their way as far abroad as the heart of Africa and the mountains of Tibet; the company even provided biscuits to Captain Scott during his 1910 expedition to the South Pole. During the First World War they produced biscuits for the war effort and devoted their tin-making resources to making cases for artillery shells. In 1970, following the merger of the Scottish biscuit companies, Crawford's, McVities and McFarlane Lang and in order to respond to that market competition, the 3 main English biscuit manufacturers, Huntley & Palmers, Peek Frean and Jacobs amalgamated together as Associated Biscuits. I have LOTS of advertising tins and decorative tins in my shop!
