We have a new work experience student in the archive this summer to help me tidy up and put even more of our collection online. Jo has been looking through the Brian Sollit collection and below are her photographs and what she has to say about it. Do leave a comment if you have any beginner’s photography tips for her.
“Here at the Nestlé Archive we have received a fantastic collection of vintage chocolate boxes amongst other Rowntree’s and Nestlé memorabilia, which has been kindly donated by Brian Sollit following his passing.
Brian was an ex-Rowntree’s employee who worked as a confectioner who helped develop dearly loved Rowntree’s products such as After Eight mints.
His diverse collection of vintage packaging and Rowntree’s related items will make a great addition to our archive.
We are using a Fujifilm Finepix HS10 and if anyone has and photography tips for us they would be greatly appreciated.“
