Weekend Trivia -- Sunday
Well, another sunny Sunday morning, but it is very windy and cool. I am hoping for a ride to do some shopping!
In 1833, shopkeeper Marcus Samuel decided to expand his London business. He sold antiques, but now added oriental shells. He aimed to capitalise on a fashion for using them in interior design. His instinct was right - such was the demand that Samuel quickly began importing shells from the Far East, laying the foundations for his import/export business. His sons later took over the shop, and expanded the business. It is now one of the largest multinational corporations in the world. What company are we talking about??
I'll be back later!!
