with Wendy Williams
In the first decades of the twentieth century biscuits made by workers in the Bishop Street factory of W & R Jacob & Co graced tables from Bombay to Buenos Aires. This talk will look at many aspects of Jacob’s 160 year business legacy from the origins of the names of the biscuits to welfare provisions for the people who made them.
