R&R Clark was founded in 1846 and remained in business in Edinburgh until 1979.

Jim Cairns has been  collecting photos of R&R Clark employees at work and at play, and photos of tickets and programmes for social functions that the company has produced over the years, the earliest dating back to 1887

Jim has now put these together to create an interesting a 21-minute film on YouTube that captures the atmosphere of the company and its workers.  The film is titled:

Printers' Pie and Pyknyks.
