Just look at these old beauties. Hard to believe they were simply stuck on a bottle to advertise a particular drink. Some of the drinks are now consigned to the history books - Ciderette, Winter Stout, Cherry Cider, Aerated Chocolate ? Some survive to this present day including Lemonade, Iron Brew and Ginger Beer. Where have these labels come from ? Nearly all have been rescued from old mineral water works or factories, lucky survivors of a Bygone Age. For that reason most are in excellent condition. They look great framed up, or stuck back on the bottles. We have even seen these labels turned into very colourful wrapping paper.
