First Food Empire: A History of J. Lyons
this book on the Internet and thoroughly
enjoyed it. Once into it I couldn't put it
down. Peter Bird - the author - himself a
long term Lyons employee, spent six years
in its research and it covers every
section of the company. It includes some
interesting observations on why the
company went to the wall and of course an
account of its beginnings.
