Did you also see in the Daily Mail. 'Cameron considers reintroducing the 'money back bottle'. They say history repeats itself, this should bring a smile to all of us of a certain age. 1d for the pop bottle or jam jar.


Gone but not forgotten. R.I.P.
No I didn't I thought about it and thought about I might have trawl through 100s of posts, but well spotted, by the way Aidan I do it from time to time.:D

These were on the Daily Mail web-page as well.
The top one is Newton Street in 1941, and the bottom one is St. Georges in !940. This is by all accounts where the Birmingham Mail depot was, along with their garage in 1940.
