Synopsis

Confectionery in Yorkshire Through Time by Paul Chrystal

Yorkshire has been home to more confectionery companies over the years than any other region of Britain. This book is the first to be published which charts the history of sweet making, in pictures and in words, from the early beginnings in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Making use of vintage packaging - showcards, tins, wrappers - advertisements and old archive photographs it vividly traces the development of the industry.This will delight and inform anyone interested in industrial, social, food and marketing history. Anyone who worked, or still works, in any of the twenty-five or so confectionery companies covered here will enjoy a nostalgic journey through the past that takes them from Hull to Halifax, from Leeds to Pontefract, from Sheffield to Doncaster, and from York to Skipton, with many sweet stops inbetween.
