Keith has provided this image, which he would welcome your thoughts upon.
Now he has a theory regarding this label, but before we share this, would you let us know what you know or suspect.
As we now have some input (thank you guys), we have added another 2 images, which may help to confirm (or not) Keith’s theory which, goes like this.
I am wondering whether the Chapman’s label is in fact Chapman & Co. of the Black Lion Brewery, Brighton?
They ceased around the turn of the 20th century and business was bought by the Rock Brewery, Brighton. However, the premises were sold to Fremlins in 1914 and used by them as a bottling store. Did they unearth the recipe for English Ale whilst in occupation?
