Description

The Legge Brothers’ business was established in 1864 in Hill Street, off Parliament Street, Dublin.

In the late 1960s Reggie Goodbody was employed as a supervisor, in charge of 43 employees. He talks about the clients – Guinness, Coca-Cola and the Harry Clarke Studios. The business survived until the introduction of plastic. This is a fascinating recording, describing the type of packaging in use before the introduction of cardboard and plastics.
