More Higsons


I feel like treating you all a bit today, or maybe I'm just feeling nostalgic, so more Higsons. Anyone know the rest of the characters in this set of show cards? I'll give you a clue as Billy Butler used to say on Radio Merseyside. There were 14 in all.

There's no prize, but I might just post more photos.

I used to love these as a kid (the Portman Group might not like that idea!)
- the French lad, Pierre Head & the red & blue ladies - Gladwys Street & Ann Field are about the only ones I can remember though.

Wes Derby, M62, Mag Hull, Kirk Dale, Pierre Head, Gladwys Street, Rock Ferry, Ann Field, Lord Street, Albert Dock, Penny Lane

You know Sue, I think there was more than 14. I'd forgotten about one or two you mention, so keep 'em coming.

I'll give you a couple of others though:

Norris Green and Count Erode!

Mike: A new post. Just for you coming up.

Hmm, I remembered Wes Derby and Penny Lane. Mag Hull doesn't ring any bells and I'd've remembered that one.

NAM said...

Too fast ... so I wonder if the mats were distributed evenly throughout the Higson's estate?

Tandleman said...

Nam - Mag Hull? Wanna bet some money on that one?

MicMac said...

Tandy, there's a pic of the Mag Hull one on that link I mentioned - http://tinyurl.com/Higsonian

I know. That's why I was willing to bet! (-;

They were centainly in use in the Liverpool city centre pubs

I can remember deliberately visiting various Higsons pubs in the hope of finding more of these. Is there a complete list anywhere?

Tandleman said...

Mudgie - I don't have the definitive list, but while I though 14, a few more have come out of the woodwork. I'm guessing now about 20. When I get some inclination, I'll list what I know.
