A photograph of workers wrapping chocolate Easter Eggs at the Cadbury Brothers Ltd factory in Bourneville, West Midlands, taken by George Woodbine for the Daily Herald newspaper on 23 February, 1933. Chocolate makers George (1839-1922) and Richard Cadbury (1835-1899) moved their factory from Birmingham to the suburb of Bournbrook in 1879. Renamed Bourneville, the site was developed as a model factory and housing complex providing good working and living conditions for Cadbury's employees. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
