Bags of Choice
This carrier bag dates from between World War II and the introduction of the new style carrier bags in the mid 1950s; when they changed from brown on brown to grey and green. The next change came in the swinging 60s when the green diamond design bag hit the high street in 1964. That was a firm favourite with many customers until the new design arrived in 2001.
The bag, which is stored in the Partnership’s archive, is made from sturdy brown paper with a cardboard top and a piece of brown string to close it.
