Introducing Sainsburys (Stratton Street)...
The Sainsbury Archive documents the history of one of the nation's oldest retailers from when it was founded in London in 1869, through to present day. It also provides a unique illustration of the transformation that has occurred in retailing and in shopping and eating habits since the mid-19th century.
The Archive is located at the Museum of London in Docklands and is open to the public. Visitors can view displays from the collection and browse a range of digital and paper-based resources from the library and archives, including reference books, image files, films and journals covering the history of Sainsbury's and shopping and the history of the docks and the local area. The separate search room is open by appointment for more in-depth research using material from the archive collections.
