Beehive Chinese label

Photo Journal: Sign of the Times

The Beehive Logo tells a story of culture, community and politics.

This gallery from our archives for example shows how at one time the political fall out of The British Isles.  And at one time this meant that that Ireland was not represented when the Irish Clover was omitted from the Beehive Logo. ( Bottom Left )

This is even more apparent on the Labels for the balls of wool which were exported to China.

This is one fascinating area of our history that we will continue to research and document.
