A fine food fayre at Foot­man’s

Let's Talk - - Postbag -

With ref­er­ence to the ar­ti­cle (Fe­bru­ary) Foot­man’s, the Store of East Anglia’ I en­close a photograph taken in 1957 when Foot­man’s hosted a food fayre in its base­ment.

My sis­ter, then Su­san Smith and I, Ju­dith Smith (bot­tom right) were demon­strat­ing on be­half of South­well’s, a sub­sidiary of Bur­ton, Son and San­ders, how to make mac­a­roons from packet in­gre­di­ents.

Next to our stall was a ‘Mary Baker’ stall demon­strat­ing their packet cake mix­tures.

I re­gret I do not know who the gen­tle­man in the cen­tre is or the other ladies but I’m sure many read­ers will be able to recog­nise these peo­ple. JU­DITH SUT­TON Colch­ester Es­sex
