Capital condoms



Thursday 18 May 2017


Selling condoms at a time when contraception was not easily discussed was a real challenge. So in the mid-part of the 20th century, how did the London Rubber Company get to grips with overcoming marketing restrictions and the later emergence of the contraceptive pill? Hear the fascinating story of a unique London-based latex product.
