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.RegardsRob AinsworthLiverpool History Society
Bill Tidy drew the satiricle figures!Cynthia Stonall,LibrarianLiverpool History Society
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!
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.
There was also (if memory serves) one for 'Rock Ferry', with a cartoon which looked very like Bryan F.
DID HIGSONS EVER BREW AND SELL THEIR OWN LAGER ? THERE IS A FEW BOB AND A FEW PINTS ON THIS
They did indeed brew their own lager. Higsons's Pilsner Lager and then Kaltenberg.See a photo here:http://tandlemanbeerblog.blogspot.com/2010/07/blast-from-past.htmlCheers - Tandleman
