Trade Ephemera

I recently came across a great collection of 1950s and 60s trade publications, of which these are just a few examples. Brilliant graphics throughout but I think my favourite has to be the Hovis one, in which, on every page, a little plastic packet is attached with a sample of wheat in one of its various forms - you can just see the first sample through the cut out window in the scan of the front cover below.

Is that sacks of margarine that the natives are carrying?
