Orkney Archive Advent Calendar - Cakes and Buns and Pastries, Oh My!

We love to celebrate advent at the Archive and have treated you in the past with seals, (both wax and singing), amazing, time-travelling celebs and lovely, pictures of snow.

This year we offer an advent calendar of Christmassy archives from across the collection. Look forward to pictures, letters and sound archives over the next few weeks. (We are starting on the 2nd of December due to terrible and sudden IT Woe yesterday afternoon.)

First up is a grocer's receipt dating from 1949 which shows the food ordered by Firth School for their Christmas party:
