Level of description: Collection
Extent: 0.16 linear metres
Name of creator(s): Blake's (Confectionary) Limited


Administrative/Biographical history:

Blake's (Confectionary) Limited first appear in Post Office Directories for London in 1928, with their address given as Queen Victoria Street, E.C.4. There is another company similarly listed as confectionary retailers, called 'Blakes', but it is highly unlikely that the two businesses were one and the same. Further confusion may arise from the fact that the 'other' Blakes had premises for a time in Victoria Street, S.W.1.


Scope and content/abstract:

Records of Blake's (Confectionary) Limited, 1926-1927, consisting of a Memorandum and Articles of Association and papers regarding premises at 22 Queen Victoria Street. There is also material concerning the appointment of Percy Driver as General Manager, and the dealings between Blake's and James Pascall Limited, a confectionary manufacturing company.
