La Société Guernesiaise.
Price: £5.50

In 1857, James Keiller & Son of Dundee, the celebrated pioneers of marmalade manufacture, set up a branch in Guernsey. Its purpose was to evade costly sugar duties, and in time it evolved into a base for the firm's nascent export trade. After 1874, when Britain permitted the free importing of sugar, the establishment lost much of its rationale, and it was closed down in 1879.
