Stunning to see that many people so interested in the result of a boxing fight. In this wireless age of immediate connectivity, it is a reminder as to the speed of news in a previous age.
I was particularly interested in the business names from 1932. The Efficient Engineering Company could claim to be seventy years ahead of the market. The Cork Examiner – both name and lettering – would be familiar.
I thought that the London & Newcastle Tea Co. was completely new to me but it appears that the name was shortened to L& N which was taken over by Musgraves in 1995 and transferred to Supervalu Brand. The Supervalu shops in Youghal and Ballincollig are still referred to as L & N by some.
