  1. Hello Alan,

    they certainly did. Some of the names (from memory) were Gwladyst Street, Doc Road, Albert Dock, Belle Vale, Count Erode, Birk N Head, and of course Penny Lane.

  3. I used to collect these…I'm sure the one that says 'Higsons Everton' should be 'Gwladys Street'. Sorry if the spellings wrong, I'm a red!

  4. There was also Mag Hull – a famous Landlady (IIRC), Wallace E Tunnel – a champion Jockey(I think), Scotty Road – the momeory is fading… Certain about the first two, may be wrong about the last.

  5. There was also (if memory serves) one for ‘Rock Ferry’, with a cartoon which looked very like Bryan F.

  7. They did indeed brew their own lager. Higsons’s Pilsner Lager and then Kaltenberg.
