There has been a bit of a conflict about what we use for this last post. My grandchildren were very keen to put in something from the microbreweries that they like so much, but I thought it was better to put in the history part of this family. Even though they have done everything to do with the computer and I worried that they would just go it alone, I finally won the argument. So why this label from all those that we found scattered across about different parts of the family. There was a strong family connection with Ye Olde Fleece in Gateshead; Aunt Lucy worked there and it is certain that someone from that side of the family was either a manger or tenant there. It was at one time an Ind Coope pub. There was also a bottling stores in Newcastle for Ind Coope and it may be that these labels came from there, before going for export. It may be that we all just like the design.
