Marcela Bonthron, Drury Lane, London, 1870s


Sarah Pullen, one of the couple’s early employees said:

The principle trade in those early days was in butter and eggs, and it was Mrs.Sainsbury who made the shop famous for the quality of its butter. She was always up very early in the morning and took great pride in the cleanliness of the shop. She was very keen on serving behind the butter counter.
