"Huntley & Palmers Biscuits" : Founded by Joseph Huntley in 1822 as a small biscuit baker and Confectioner  at 119 London Street, at the time the main stage Coach Route to Bath, Bristol and West Country. Selling to travelers, the biscuits would break. A solution was to sell the biscuits  in tins for the first time. In 1838 Joseph Huntley retired due to bad health handing onto his son Thomas. Thomas takes on a business partner, George Palmer who, together with his brothers, ended up taking over the business. The Highly decorated tins became of huge asset to the export industry. The Stage Coach Empire gave way to the Great Railway Empire and the brand grew exponentially.

The Sphere Christmas 1950 : features a Gothic church interior and has a mother and two children dressed in medieval Fashion, illustrated by John Miller Watt (1895-1975).
