    Robbo, I'm so glad you posted all these after tea-time. It's still making my tummy rumble a bit. Hmmm... so many goodies to choose from. They could've sprung straight from the pages of one of Mrs Beeton's cookbooks.

    ASSORTED SCONES....[a choice from]
    Sultana, Lemon, Currant, Wholemeal, Soda and Potatoe!


    I also liked:

    "Pre War Strength Scotch Whiskey"

    "Hayward's Military Pickles"

    "Potatoe scraping gloves"



    Well done Robbo, great stuff.

    When I used to come home on leave my Mum used to get Canadian corn cured bacon from Coopers so that I could have it with two eggs for breakfast, it was bloody marvellous. I loved the aromas in Coopers,ground coffee ,smoked ham, strong cheeses and all the other spicy things,combined to create a bouqet that would have your olfactory senses going into overdrive,thanks for the memory Robbo,

    I hated the smell of coffee from Coopers !, my Mum loved it though, from the time when I was really young I have hated and still do the smell of coffee, I,m sure it was because of Coopers.....loved the cheesey smell though....
    Once again what a crime this lovely old building was torn down for modern concrete "blocks" !

    Yes it is. W. H. Smith's was in there when I was over in 2007 but I think I have heard that it has changed hands?

    W. H. Smith's is now part of Liverpool One. Cooper's building dates from the later end of when St Peter's church was still standing. See the 'before and after' attached below.
