1927: Mary, Her Lamb And HP Sauce...

We'll dart back to the 1920s now, where we find that Mary had a little lamb with lots of HP Sauce. Note Mary's little lamb on wheels! A very clever ad, and one of my favourites.

Did you know that the HP Sauce recipe was invented by Nottingham grocer  Frederick Gibson Garton in the 1890s? The name "HP" comes from the rumour that it was served in the Houses of Parliament.
