As it has been some time since #2 and now that holidays are over & work under control for the present. I thought I would provide another pair of similar labels for you to compare.
Once again the labels both appear to be from a similar time period. However one bears the words “Trade Mark”, whilst the other does not. The label without the “Trade Mark” also has the addition of “Ltd” and very correct punctuation. You would imagine that the label bearing just “Co.” to be the earlier. However the the very correct punctuation on the other label, might indicate this is earlier. What do you think?

Sorry for the lack of updates over the last week or so, it becomes rather manic at this time of year. However the label display boards are now virtually complete, labels all sorted and the deadline for entries has now officially expired. So apart from anything else, the postie is happy. It’s all over for another year and he can revert to delivering junk mail & bills. On a happier note, we are delighted that over 160breweries have chosen to take part in LOTY 2013 and as a result support this year’s charities. MacMillan Cancer Support & Keech Hospices. As you know LOTY judging is a members only event and once again this year, will take place upstairs at the Brunswick Inn, Derby, this coming Saturday. The Brunswick is within very easy walking distance from Derby train station, which is fortunate for anyone sampling one too many of the excellent beers OTB. See you on Saturday
Had a chat with long suffering postie today, as he asked what Labology was all about and why he was lugging all these deliveries for LOTY around the countryside. I explained and he was of course duly impressed (I think, if not perhaps he should take up acting as an alternative career). Anyway he has delivered entries from
Sunny Republic Brewing Co. Cross Bay Brewery, Fool Hardy Ales @ The Hope Inn, Cotleigh Brewery – Thanks to all of you for your support
For all you Tweeps out there, we have finally reached the 200 follower mark. Am sure if our members were to sign up & follow we would soon pass another milestone. It really is easy (it must be, I managed it) and you might just be surprised, who & what you can find both locally & nationally. Think about it.
