About this work


"Probably for use in their factories in Britain" according to the Victoria & Albert Museum catalogue, loc. cit. However the Danepak website (accessed 7 January 2010) says the first Danish Bacon factory in Britain was opened in Selby in 1958: could this poster have been for butchers' shops instead?
