How much did that cost? #1

After the very pleasing response to our Advent Calendar and the sharp upturn in both viewings and comments, we thought another theme would be welcomed. This will feature labels with money as part of the design, sometimes the cost per bottle, others will have an indication of gravity or even a deposit on the bottle. We start with a gem from Phillips and Marriott of the Midland Brewery in Coventry. 7d a bottle, that is just under 3p in today’s money. And the cost of the label today? In excess of £500 we would imagine. And don’t forget there is still time to send a solution to Advent Calendar #24 which can be found HERE.
