System of arrangement

This material seems to represent the filing system for advertising reports and analysis, 1909-1924. The files and divided under five headings: Elect Cocoa, Chocolates, Elect Chocolate, Gums and Sundries. (The heading Sundries covers special promotional events, including the Antarctic Expedition of 1907-1908; travellers' samples and also the private files on staffing, salaries, tax and other matters.) Under each heading there are files on Estimated, Final Cost Statements, Advertising, Sales and various other subjects, including files for particular advertising campaigns or events. There is a bound 'index' (in fact a list) of all the files, which have references of the form (eg) EC/F/8. (ie Elect Cocoa, Final Cost Statements, file 8). Not all files survive. Individual files can be ordered using their original reference numbers. Titles given are original file titles.
