The workers of Bush Boake and Allen gathered for a group photo in 1947. This factory at Liston, upriver of Sudbury, made a wide range of essences and flavourings used in the food and cosmetic industries. We include it in the Archive because many of the workers presumably came from Sudbury.

The market town of Sudbury, on the borders of Suffolk and Essex, has a long and fascinating history. Much of the way of life in the town since the invention of photography has been caught on camera. The Sudbury Museum Trust has developed this website to show and provide information on a selection of these photographs.
