In the follow-up to Eamon Donnelly's sold-out, out-of-print first title from 2018, Volume II goes beyond the closed shopfronts and back to where it all began. Documenting over a century of sweet memories, archival photography, advertising, packaging, signage, stories, and history, the book is split into chapters for each decade — from 1900 to now. Volume 2 is a 356-page celebration of family, food, community, advertising, and childhood memory — a visual feast chronicling what we used to have and what has slowly faded away.
