Blast from the Past: an Original TBS Bag from c.1979 Discovered

July 21, 2017



Wowee, what a find! TBS Daventry yard man and super-sleuth, Ray Lunt, was visiting a relative and came across this. It’s one of the very first rubble sacks produced for our company, almost certainly for our first branch, on Islington Road, Towcester. This opened in 1978 and you can read more of its story through this link.


We guess the bag must date the period 1978-80. Do any staff or customers remember these bags? Do you know who the artist was? We’d love to find out more, so please use the COMMENTS option and share your reminiscences!
