History in all shapes and sizes

Not everything in a museum collection makes perfect sense. Sometimes you just have to enjoy something for what it is. Like a large plastic Tizer sign.

What's not to like about a large Tizer sign?

    Your shirt and tizer – things that went out of fashion in the 80’s

    Do you know when that branding dates to? I just dug up a can with the branding in my back garden and wondered how long it had been there.

      I think it is the mid 80’s, but cannot give you a definitive date. I believe Tizer as a drink has been around from the 1920’s, so it could be even earlier than that!

    Did that big Tizer sign come off a unit just off Bolton Rd / Nova Scotia? – I remember one being there for years, right through until the 1990’s and probably into the Noughties.

    Tizer had factory just off Whalley Range, on the bank of the Blakewater, backing on to what was once East lancashire Coach Builders.
