The first Kempton of the autumn and winter to open in the dark and before the sun was up I chanced upon this Huntley & Palmers Biscuit Tin in the form of a suitcase dating back to the years known as Those Before the Great War.  It had not been labelled by its owner and the biscuits it once contained had long been scoffed but it is safe to assume that it once served proudly in a kitchen or larder in Arcadia.
