Beer prices in Blackburn

Sunday, July 3rd, 2011

We have had the following query. Can anyone help please?

Hi Hope you can help

I remember both the Lion and Dutton breweries in Blackburn, as I went to school in Blackburn

I (think) I can also remember a pint of Lion bitter costing less than one shilling, (12 old pennies, not pence)

Would you have any printed matter to that effect ?

60’s prices from any Lancashire brewery would do at a pinch, or would you know how to get this information?
