Taking Stock: The Ninety-O’Clock News for Clarkson Hyde

TS LAMENTS the days when post would land on the proverbial doorstep with a thud. Nowadays there’s the unsatisfying ‘ping’ of more nonsense spam arriving in the virtual inbox.

So when real, hard copy, post arrives (such as Pizza Hut leaflets), TS gets understandably excited.

And TS wasn’t disappointed by the hefty envelope received from south-east firm Clarkson Hyde today.

Celebrating 90 years in the game (…of accountancy: Ed), the firm has put together a lovely ‘olde-style’ newspaper – snappily titled ‘Nonagenarian News” – of the time.

Outlining the firm’s beginnings with John Clarkson and Frank Hyde in 1923 based at 57 Basinghall St EC2, through tough times in the 1970s, it leads up to modern times with its renaissance as a seven-partner firm.

So TS applauds the team for putting together a class bit of marketing material. The adverts, including this one (below) certainly tickled us.
