When we lived in Lyon Street in the late 40s I seem to remember going to the Co-op and getting sugar in bags they made up on the spot from sheets of that blue sugar paper . And my memory is of them using the same kind of paper but a different colour to make up bags for lentils. The bags were folded origami style and would have used no sticky tape or other adhesive. Wiki tells me that the sugar paper you get now for art work derives from that same rough blue paper that sugar bags came in but I'm wondering if I'm falsely remembering that they made them up by folding them as they were needed. Does anyone else remember this.
